Pierre Sterlé Paris Diamond Clip Brooch


Created in the Mid-20th century, this 18K gold and diamond clip brooch was created by the Parisian jeweler Pierre Sterlé. The clip is designed as a naturalistic frond composed of multiple slender curving and spiraling gold leaves with platinum tips and pavé-set diamond dewdrops, stemming from a textured gold branch. Imbued with a dynamic sense of life and nature, this beautifully modeled brooch conveys the distinctive energy and vitality of Sterlé’s sought-after jewels.

Sterlé’s jewelry is characterized by strong, flowing lines and a sense of momentarily suspended motion. Here, Sterlé depicts the energy in a sudden gust of wind catching a delicate frond, which momentarily twists and turns.
