The Details...

This silver tone brooch features a typically geometric Art Deco design encrusted with round, faceted, clear rhinestones. The brooch fastens using a 'C' catch and the fastening pin is fitted to the brooch with a round hinge fitting. The brooch measures 7cm x 3cm. 

A Short History...

During the 1920s and early 1930s, jewellery was influenced by the dawn of a new era. There was a push for all things modern after the shock of the First World War - people wanted to be cleansed of the old and celebrate the new. In the world of design a pure, hard-edged style was craved. This was evident in Bauhaus architecture, cubist art and the dropped-waist, linear-cut silhouette of the Flapper Girl. Jewellery designers looked to celebrate a burgeoning, bright industrial future in their work, creating pieces that looked almost mechanical with their sharp shapes and chrome coloured highlights. This brooch is certainly a-typical of Art Deco jewellery design during the period - its bold geometry, encrusted with bright diamantes for a new feminine look and movement. 

Wear it With...

This brooch is perfect for evening wear or a special occasion. It would look beautiful with a little black dress, but equally chic with a bridal gown.
