A Short History...

Examples of Christian Dior jewellery from the 1950s and 1960s, such as this brooch, are highly collectable because of the bold, stylised and elegant designs highly reminiscent of the era and the House's fashions. Christian Dior jewellery from the period is also of outstanding quality because the man himself insisted upon the house's accessories emulating the quality of its couture. This brooch was designed and produced in Germany for the house by Henkel and Grosse - renowned for their fine craftsmanship and eye for design. Christian Dior only relied upon the most expert producers to create for his company. With its prestigious heritage, beautiful design, excellent crafting and pristine condition - this brooch is a must have indeed. 

Wear it With...

A classic piece, this brooch works well with any form of style - it would look exceptional with a little black dress, but also works well with a denim shirt.
