Ask a question

This 1920s 18-carat white gold jabot pin is a rescue job.

It had been turned into a brooch, with the addition of a heavy long central bar between the diamond elements. I have converted it back to its original function.

The main old cut diamond is just over a carat and is of very good quality. The Art Deco palmette design is set with old mine cut accent diamonds, finely millegrained throughout.

The pin is meant to be fully concealed by fabric when worn. Its design is ingenious – a simple twist locks this jewel securely into place.
