French Vintage Brooch 18k Gold Enamel Gems Duck Pin Clip Estate Jewelry

About the Item

Lovely joyful clip created in France in the 1950s. Depicting three ducks, fun and articulated, the brooch is definitely a conversational piece. Colorful and wearable, the clip is a great addition to your jewelry collection. The pin is made of 18 karat (stamped) yellow gold, enamel and set with round full cut rubies, emeralds and sapphires. The ducks' noses and beaks are accented with round full cut diamonds. The clip measures 2 x 1-1/8 inches (4.5 x 2.8 centimeters) and weighs 32.4 grams. Stamped with serial number and French hallmark for 18 karat gold. Vintage French jewelry is highly valued by jewelry experts and enthusiasts. Since the late Renaissance, France has been established itself as one of the world trendsetters in art and fashion. A quick look at the top 5 French jewelry designers — Cartier, Van Cleef & Arpels, Hermes, Chaumet, Chanel — describes French level of greatness even better. What allowed France to reach such a high level in the jewelry world hierarchy? In a nutshell, it’s because of the apprenticeship system. In the beginning of 1950s in France anyone at the age 14 could start learning the craft. This way French jewelers, like no others in the world, gain a substantial portion of experience at the early age. Even non-designer jewels were produced by the high skilled masters. Most modern jewelry is not handcrafted anymore, and mass market-oriented production is prevailing. Jewelry designs are streamlined to use as less hand labor as possible. That’s why today vintage French jewelry is in such high demand.

Since we started to make our very first steps into the jewelry world, vintage brooches and pins have always been our favorite pieces. Wearing a brooch is a smart, unique way to express your personality and style. Pin it to your lapel, scarf or a bag, and with just one brooch alone you can create the whole new fashion piece out of any garment or accessory. Some brooches could be worn as pendants, so you get two pieces in one. A brooch is an amazing jewel that is fun, elegant and expressive at the same time. French vintage brooches are even more special to us. Being famous for its extraordinary craftsmanship, each French maker has their own recognizable take on it. Either it’s a prestigious Cartier or Van Cleef & Arpels or non-branded French brooch, we appreciate its sophisticated beauty and exquisite quality. One of our all-time favorites is a dress clip. The design came from 1920s and since then has been appreciated by the jewelry lovers for versatility and original look it provides to any style. Choose and pin down your own fabulous version of a Vintage French brooch.
