18 Karat Gold Brooch with Chrysoberyls and Amethysts, 20th Century

About

The present clasp is formed from two circular bands on the sides, flanking another more in the form of an oval with the major axis vertically arranged on both sides. The three elements have been enhanced with a simplified simplified vegetal elements and a crestería in the outer front, and serve as background to a fine composition of vegetal elements and floras of classicist memory in bright background combined with areas and vegetal elements in mate (with a delicately chopped luster). On this background, and to highlight it even more, a series of faceted gems of different sizes and sizes have been arranged: two squares (chrysoberyl) at the ends next to faceted amethyst ovals; In the central zone, a composition has been arranged alternating the same types of stones (highlighted these with pearls in gold) with the chrysoberilos in pairs and the amethysts in oval and of greater size) and fine leaves with chopped of luster. The mentioned vegetal elements located on the base bands remember to neoclassical works from 19th century. However, both the composition and the base of three elements already mentioned is not usual in jewelry of this period, nor is the marked color contrast achieved by the gems that the clasp presents or the fact that it does not follow a rigid symmetry in the arrangement of some of the various decorative plant elements. In addition, there are certain details in the vegetal elements of the lateral ones that remember slightly to Rococo decorative motifs from the 18th century, although they present the movement and the depth very attenuated (practically as it was done when the inspiration were mostly the Neoclassicism). The mentioned elements speak of a remarkable care and quality at the time of designing the jewel as well as the choice of materials and the creation of the piece, something habitual in this type of works, appreciated so much by its economic value as by its beauty, its visibility, and the reflection of the taste and social position of its owner. The shapes of the brooch suggest a feminine use of the same. Weight: 12.47 grams. Size: 5.2 x 3.9 cms. Depth is orientative.
