Diamond brooches

Diamonds had their heyday in jewelry making at the end of the 19th century after the discovery of the Premier mine in South Africa. The mine is so large and rich in diamonds that the price of the stone falls and all jewelers adorn their jewelry with these brilliant stones. Then, during the Art Deco period, it was the fashion for “white” jewelry: platinum frames, jewelry set only with diamonds. The diamond brooches know their hours of glory.

    More information : Moon-shaped jewelry was very fashionable in the second half of the 19th century. This corresponds to the rediscovery of Greco-Roman civilization and the “lunar triad” composed of Selene, Hecate and Artemis, symbolizing respectively the full moon, the new moon (or black moon) and the crescent moon. Jewelry adorned with one or more moons is highly symbolic, oriented towards the feminine, and is sometimes complemented by a lucky star, meant to show the way.
