Citrine & Diamanté Spray on Gold Leaf Brooch

Citrine & Diamanté Spray on Gold Leaf Brooch


Additional information


Elsa Schiaparelli


2" x 1 1/4"






"Schiaparelli" (in script) on oval cartouche

This citrine pin by Elsa Schiaparelli is a lovely example of 1950s tailored jewelry. A richly-textured, gold-plated leaf forms the base. The top layer has citrine-glass-stone flowers with pavé silver-tone stems. The level of detail is superb: in addition to the elaborate, layered construction, the leaf has visible veins and a furled bottom on its front as well as texture on the back. I’m not sure which way this jewel was intended to be worn, so I’m showing both orientations in the photos – take a look and decide which you prefer.
