Vintage Luxe: French Gold & Diamond Brooch

A quintessential expression of the 1960s French elegance, this brooch presents an assemblage of 36 diamonds, harmoniously combining old brilliant and single cuts to a total of approximately 4.45 carats. Crafted in the period's characteristic warm 18K yellow gold and platinum, this piece bears the prestigious French hallmarks: an eagle's head for gold and a dog's head for platinum, assuring its provenance and fineness. An embodiment of vintage luxury, this brooch reflects the sophistication and vivacity of its era.
