Vintage Mid-Century 1950/60
A lovely authentic vintage TIFFANY brooch designed with 2 overlapping hearts, both set with striking faceted cut natural red rubies. The hearts are nestled, one overlapping the other, while the rubies are prong mounted at the middle of the top edge of each heart.
The hearts have been meticulously finished in a fluted pattern, as one line is designed concave, while the other is designed convex. Simply a beautiful presentation, the flutes are designed to attract light and by doing so, each one creates its own beautiful light show.
The 2 natural rubies each measure approximately 2mm in diameter. Gorgeous deep red in color, these are stunning little rubies.
The brooch measures approximately 34.88 mm across the front (approximately 1-1/2 inch) x 32.30 mm top to bottom ( approximately 1-1/4 inch). A lovely size, easily noticed when pinned to a garment and is sure to garner many compliments.
The backside is fully finished in high polish gold with a nice sturdy, well made pin stem and clasp. The backside is hallmarked, TIFFANY & CO. 14K. There also appears to be letters etched on the backside but cannot make those out. Please see picture.
Fabulous weight, 6.9 grams.
