Edwardian Diamond Brooch

Fleur de Lys

An elegant Edwardian brooch with alternating stylized lilies and quatrefoils in fine filigree work framed by bolder, scrolling fleurs-de-lys at the ends.  In the center a small sparkling diamond rests in a quatrefoil setting.  Created by Taylor & Co. in 14kt white and yellow gold, circa 1920.

The filigree centers flow organically into bolder fleurs-de-lys at the ends of the pin. The ends then turn backward morphing into richly flowing scrolls.  An extraordinary amount of detail for a brooch that is just under 1/4" wide at its widest point.

The reverse of the brooch is crafted in 14kt yellow gold with the same care as the front.  Note the sturdy side walls of the gallery which frames the piece and protects the filigree work.  The finest Edwardian jewels are delicate in appearance, but beautifully and sturdily crafted.

The top of the clasp is stamped with the maker's mark of Taylor & Company - "14" and "K" surrounding a draftsman's "T".  The jewelry maker was founded in the late 1800s and created beautifully designed, finely crafted brooches, cufflinks and other jewels until the Great Depression if the 1930s.
