Art Deco Sapphire Brooch

Art Deco sapphire and pearl brooch (J9488)

Art Deco Sapphire


A jazzy Art Deco brooch in the intricate, geometric style of the 1920s.  This striking jewel is accented with a French-cut man-made sapphire and two small pearls.  Created by Krementz & Co. in 14kt white gold, circa 1925.

Though just over an inch long,  the bright intricacy of the brooch's design brings to mind the Chrysler building in New York and other icons of Art Deco architecture.  This jewel would have been the ideal accessory for an evening at the 21 Club or a premiere at Grauman's Chinese and Egyptian theaters in Hollywood.

The beauty of the brooch is matched by the care with which it was crafted.  Please note the crispness of the cut-out work and the sturdy side walls which frame the piece.  This jewel is secured on a lapel with a strong pin stem and early safety clasp.

The top of the clasp is stamped with the maker's mark of Krementz & Company (a stylized collar button) above the precious metal mark "14K".  Krementz was founded shortly after the Civil War and created finely designed brooches, cufflinks and other fine jewels for much of the 20th century.
