Plique-à-Jour Enamel and Freshwater Pearl Pendant Brooch
Dating from the 1900s, this gold and platinum convertible pendant brooch features plique-à-jour enamel, diamonds, and a freshwater pearl drop. The chased gold figure of the head and shoulders of young woman with swirling hair reaches her hand forward, against a glowing rose-colored plique-à-jour enamel and gold flower ground, with foliate diamond and platinum highlights and a flexible pearl pendant. Graceful and versatile, this artistic pendant brooch unites the love for nature with the lost art of highly-skilled period enamelists.
