A dramatic and very beautiful Brutalist brooch with a fabulous curving abstract design featuring a bright violet natural amethyst. The heavily textured silver contrasts perfectly with the glossy purple gemstone.
The design has the raw texture, flow and movement of great Brutalist work, a wonderful example of this exciting design genre.
+ All the details
The brooch is made from 835 European silver, stamped '835'. The stone is a natural amethyst and is pinned very securely in place in a design that 'floats' the stone beautifully.
60mm x 30mm or 2.3 x 1.18 inches. The amethyst is approximately 6 x 7mm in size. Shown on a life size torso shoulder in image #3.
Weight : 11.6 grams
Age: c. 1960 - could possibly be earlier.
Condition: Excellent. No issues at all and the pin, hinge and security catch are strong and working as they should.Though the brooch appears to be rough in texture, in reality all edges are polished smooth.
A mini sculpture - I can think of no better way of describing this amazing brooch. Fabulous pinned to a simple black top.
