The Details...

This bar brooch is constructed from Novoplatin - a metal alloy created to imitate Platinum. It features a simple and elegant design detailed with a central, large, round, clear, multi-faceted, claw set paste stone and small, round, clear paste stones set in a leaf design at either side. The brooch fastens using a 'C' catch and the pin is fitted to the brooch with a round hinge. The brooch measures 9cm x 0.75cm. The brooch also features a makers mark stamped in script form. However, after much research, this has proven to be indecipherable. 

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.
