3" x 2"






"Schiaparelli" (in script) on oval cartouche


Becker, p. 103

This gold-tone late-1940s brooch by Elsa Schiaparelli is “designed as [a] dancing openwork leaf” (Becker) and set with emerald, ruby, sapphire and amber art-glass cabochons in dog-tooth prongs. The outline of the leaf and stem are textured. This versatile and elegant brooch closes with a roll-over safety clasp. I think this jewel was meant to be worn with the leaf pointing down, as shown in the first photo, but the third photo shows the leaf pointing up – you decide which you prefer!
