SOLD - 20.38 ct Multi-Gemstone 'Tutti-Frutti', 14 ct Yellow Gold Ukulele Brooch - Vintage


This stunning vintage multi-gemstone brooch has been crafted in 14ct yellow gold.

The colourful, three-dimensional brooch, in the form of a ukulele player, is embellished with twenty-one precious gemstones of various sizes dependent on position within the design.

Three feature natural cabochon emeralds represent the musician's* body and pantaloons, with a cushion mixed cut 2.30ct natural purple sapphire representing the face.

The sapphire is encircled with a turban-like 14ct yellow gold border ornamented with an Old European cut and a modern brilliant round cut diamond, a square step cut natural emerald, a round cut natural ruby and a larger round cut natural blue sapphire, all individually displayed to the three fronds that emanate from the turban.

This impressive "tutti-frutti"* style brooch is further accented with a round mixed cut natural pink sapphire to the neck, above a row of eight, individually held natural emeralds and sapphires around the border of the ruffled collar-like design.

The final component of this impressive vintage brooch is the realistically modelled ukulele held in the musician's hands.

The ukelele head is accented with three individually claw set natural blue sapphires representing the tuning pegs.

This impressive example of 1990's jewellery secures to the reverse with hinged pin and safety catch fastening.

This stunning brooch is supplied with three independent diamond grading report cards for the feature gemstones and diamonds, and the brooch has been independently tested using state of the art technology (Niton XL2 Analyzer) and verified as 14 ct gold.

NOTE* This 'musician' could be loosely styled on Carmen Miranda in her famous 'tutti frutti' turban, the connection being re-affirmed with physical multi-gemstone, 'tutti frutti' embellishment to the fronds emanating from the turban.
