Art Deco Platinum, Onyx and Diamond Brooch
Price range: $$$$
Courtesy of Macklowe Gallery: Depicting a poppy blossom, one can clearly see that the jeweler who created this piece was truly awed at the durability and strength of platinum—the metalwork evokes a sense of daring exploration… and a desire to immortalize the beautiful impermanence of nature. Every striation is fine and even; this brooch has remained in pristine condition after almost 90 years! Say what you will about diamonds, but platinum definitely is forever.
