    Condition Report:

    Very Good - An element of darkening to some of the paste stones. This is consistent with age, but does not detract from the appeal of the piece.

    The Details...

    This brooch is constructed from silver tone metal and features a swirling design. It is set with round, colourless paste stones. The brooch fastens using a trombone catch and the pin is fitted to the brooch with a round hinge.  The brooch measures 6.5cm x 3.5cm. This brooch was most likely made in Czechoslovakia for export to France. The stamp '337' on reverse of the brooch is indicative of this.

    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 resulted in linear, geometric and symmetrical jewellery designs, as can be seen in this beautiful brooch.

    Wear it With...

    This brooch looks elegant pinned to the blazer lapel of a midnight blue trouser suit.

    All that Glitters

    The jewellery within the Gemma Redmond Vintage collection has survived to this day because it has been well cared for throughout its lifetime. It is important to continue to care for the jewellery that you buy from us to ensure its continued preservation. Here are some suggestions:

    - Be sure to store your jewellery within the boxes that we provide to ensure that it is protected. This is especially important when travelling with your pieces.

    - Try not to get perfume or hairspray on your items. These liquids can damage the materials that our jewellery is made from.

    - Try not to drop your jewellery or catch your jewellery against hard surfaces. If this happens over time, the findings and fixings can loosen and wear.

    - Try not to get your jewellery wet. Some costume jewellery manufacturers utilised water soluble glue in the making of their pieces. Getting your jewellery wet could cause rhinestones and other details to fall away over time.

    - If you wish to clean your jewellery, use a soft polishing cloth or a soft brush.
