Art Deco Sapphire Brooch

Art Deco sapphire and pearl brooch (J9488)

Art Deco Sapphire

A jazzy Art Deco brooch in the intricate, geometric style of the 1920s and 1930s.  The brooch is accented with a French-cut man-made sapphire and two small pearls.  Created by Krementz & Co. in 14kt white gold, circa 1925.

Although just over an inch long,  the bright intricacy of the brooch's design brings to mind New York's Chrysler building and other icons of Art Deco architecture.  This jewel would have been ideal for an evening of entertainment at the Mayan or Grauman's Chinese theater in Los Angeles.

The beauty of the brooch is matched by the care with which it was crafted.  Please note on the reverse the crispness of the cut-out work and the sturdy side walls which frame the piece.  The jewel is secured on a lapel or hat with a strong pin stem and early safety clasp.

The top of the clasp is stamped with the maker's mark of Krementz & Company (a stylized collar button) above the precious metal mark "14K".  The jewelry maker was founded shortly after the Civil War and created beautifully designed brooches, cufflinks and other fine jewels into the 20th century.
