A row of 26 mille grain set brilliant cut diamonds circumvent the central brilliant cut diamond in this platinum Art Deco style bar brooch from 1950. In doing so, the two outer rows of 64 old single brilliant cut diamonds are intersected all the way through to the rectangular mille grain frame border. Talking about dashing diamonds!

Country of origin: Although it does not carry any legible control marks we believe this to be of Belgian origin.

That to most people this is Art Deco is no coincidence as both Retro style and Fifties style are the style successors of Art Deco. or more info on styles
