Evocative of a horn of abundance, this vintage brooch/pendant, circa 1950, is a treasure trove of craftsmanship from Belgium. Its platinum form unfurls in a cornucopia of natural fancy coloured diamonds—ranging from the soft luminescence of cognac to the deep blues and vibrant greens. The dance of light is further enriched by eight carre cut emeralds and the gentle sheen of two pearls. Reflecting the transitional era, this jewel is a symphony of the Fifties' spirit, bridging Art Deco inspiration with the essence of abundance.
