This large vintage Persian turquoise and 18k yellow gold leaf brooch is unusual in design, suggesting the exoskeleton of the leaf in a very Retro aesthetic. The brooch is studded with 15 larger Persian turquoise cabochons and edged with a curved line of a dozen smaller round Persian turquoise cabochons. In excellent vintage condition, the leaf measures 2 5/16” by 1 3/8” and weighs 13 grams of 18k yellow gold (assayed.)
Pin this versatile brooch to a black (or your favorite color) sweater and the open, negative spaces will be black (or your favorite color), highlighting the rich turquoise and gold leaf pattern. The color possibilities are endless and with each wardrobe change the look of the leaf will change, as if with the seasons!
