Edwardian Diamond and Platinum Brooch

Edwardian platinum brooch with diamonds.

Cool Elegance!

The jewelers of the Edwardian period (circa 1900 - 1914) excelled at creating jewelry with a lace-like airiness.  Edwardian jewels emphasized a cool whiteness in the choice of gemstones and precious metals.  This platinum and diamond brooch is a wonderful example.

Created for Shreve, Crump and Low of Boston around 1905, this brooch is accented with 18 Old European Cut diamonds with an approximate total weight of 0.5 carats.

This lovely jewel combines rich elegance with an understated modern design.   It is the ideal jewel for an intimate candle-lit dinner, as well as the lapel of your favorite tailored suit.   Charm, versatility and beauty.....what more could you ask for!

Cost:  Although this brooch has sold,  you will find many more beautiful brooches in the Antique Brooch Gallery.

Measurements:   This striking Edwardian brooch is 1.75" in width 0.875" in height.



Review view of Edwardian platinum brooch with diamonds.

In this rear-view of the brooch you can see the exacting detail with which the design was hand-crafted in platinum.   Also note the transitional clasp (on the left-hand side) which is common to jewelry created during the early decades of this century.

Below is a close-up view of the hallmark, "S.C. & L. Co.". Shreve, Crump and Low, in business for over 200 years, was one of the preeminent Boston jewellers during the Age of Platinum.
