A beautiful vintage brooch dating back to Art Deco period, circa 1920! Boasting a tantalizing opal doublet of many colours including blue, green, red, purple and orange - and displayed in a shimmering pinfire pattern - dancing colours in every movement!
The opal doublet is likely to have originated from Australia, Coober Pedy - a South Australian town renowned for opal mining.
The sleek bar design features three swiss-cut diamonds either side of opal, the bright, clean clarity diamonds measure 1.70mm each, totaling approximately 0.12 carats. Adding extra style to brooch is the milgrain edging as well as the upswept and split shoulders.
