Rock Crystal, Emerald and Diamond Platinum Brooch
A La Vieille Russie
There is no denying that this spectacular brooch—circa 1935—is of fine make. Its Art Deco jeweler knew that platinum would securely cradle and provide a nearly seamless effect to the diamonds and emeralds, as well as lend an ethereal quality with the addition of a rock crystal halo (a truly clever element because transparent rock crystal will essentially adopt any color that is placed behind it, rendering this piece an easy match to any shirt or jacket collar). This would be a particularly marvelous platinum gift for your special someone born in May!
