Item description:

See scan - absolutely perfect condition. This is an important Edwardian / Art Nouveau gold and platinum diamonds brooch / broche in a mystical stylized butterfly form. The brooch has 3 large old European cut brilliant diamonds each weighing approximately about 0.90 carats each and actually the abdomen diamond is probably a 1 carat piece. The head of the butterfly is also a great 0.25-0.3 carat diamond and the wings are paved with smaller rose cut stones. Total carat weight is most likely a stunning 3.5 carats for this fine antique jewelry piece. The diamonds have very good F color and are VS2-SI1 clarity. Dramatically sparkling and lively! The piece was ordered by special appointment to be crafted in France around 1903 by one of the Serbian Queens. Although the jewel has no markings it is so finely and artist designed that it could well be attributed to some of the major jewelers at that time, i.e. Cartier, Chaumet, etc. In any case it was one of the major jewellery makers in Paris. The brooch is 39mm wide accross the wings and 19mm tall along the body of the butterfly. Comes with COA and provenance. Absolutely scarce antique jewelry / jewellery collector piece and one of the scarcest insects and Art Nouveau diamond brooches / jewels.
