A Noble Diamond Brooch

Recently, Sotheby’s sold at their annual Royal & Noble auction a diamond brooch for £5,292.

The brooch is not marked by a specific jeweler, so it’s difficult to ascertain its maker or country of origin. However, it was listed as “Property of a Lady of Title” giving the diamond brooch an aristocratic, possibly even royal, provenance.

The total diamond weight is approximately 4.50 to 5.50 carats and was made circa 1800 or later. The brooch is designed in the shape of a flower and mounted en tremblant, which was the preferred jewelry style of that time period.

I think it’s stunning and I’d wear it in a heartbeat. I hope the lucky buyer enjoys it immensely.
