This magnificent, stunning, fine and impressive antique ship brooch has been crafted in platinum.
This stunning antique brooch reflects the form of a brigantine; a double mast sailing ship, with a square topsail and gaffsail.
The sails, hull and forecastle of this stunning ship are embellished with a combination of one hundred and thirty-three pavé set Old European, Dutch and eight cut, very well colour matched diamonds.
The bow is accented with an individually displayed step cut diamond held in a rectangular collet setting.
The finer details of this impressive nautical brooch, such as the platinum rope ladders and masts, are accented with millegrain decoration.
A single row of twelve channel set step cut natural emeralds ornament the ship's hull.
The brooch secures to the reverse with a hinged pin and safety clasp fastening.
This magnificent 1910 brooch is supplied with an independent diamond grading report card.
The brooch has been independently tested using state of the art technology (Niton XL2 Analyzer) and verified as platinum.
"Rather than regarding inclusions in coloured stones as harmful, in small sizes and numbers that do not in any way detract from their beauty, they should be regarded as adding to desirability, for they provide identifying characteristics."
