This 14K yellow gold and silver brooch from 1972 by the well-known Dutch contemporary jewellery artist, Chris Steenbergen, serves as a collectible piece of future antique jewellery. This design illustrates interplay of contours in the shape of a square outer line, a circular negative inner space and an oval profile. Being an example of minimalistic abundance, this jewel is a wearable statement.
