Edwardian Natural Pearl and Diamond Grape Cluster Brooch
Ripe for the harvesting, crushing, pressing, fermenting, racking, clarification, filtration, maturation, bottling, ageing, and imbibing! A dense cluster of lustrous natural pearl grapes, aglow with iridescent white-rosé overtones, is crowned with sparkling diamond-studded leaves in this exceptional and exceptionally lovely Edwardian-era adornment, artfully hand fabricated in platinum over 18K yellow gold - circa 1900. 1 1/2 by 1 1/8 inches.
Dating back to the first or second decade of the twentieth century, this delightful Edwardian delicacy, lightly and lovingly hand fabricated in platinum, centers a stylized bow motif aglitter with small round and rose-cut diamonds and lustrous natural pearls. The fine spirographic filigree work makes artful use of negative space and incorporates the color of the underlying fabric for an overall enchanting effect. 2 1/8 by 1 3/4 inches, the pin stem is 18K yellow gold.
