A stunning heirloom sapphire-blue paste and cultured pearls brooch has become both the focal point as well as the clasp, for a necklace of hand-coiled kyanite nuggets and creamy cultured freshwater pearls. This unique design allows the wearer to easily close the clasp in front of the necklace or simply remove the beautiful classic brooch to be worn separately.
This heirloom brooch is easily dated and identified as part of a genre of jewelry that consisted of elaborate filigreed metalwork combined with semi-precious stones, paste stones, enamels and seed pearls. Although considered costume jewelry, these exquisitely made grandiose designs remain highly coveted - even today. 22 inches long.
