I think it’s time for an Art Deco tiara.
I’m particularly partial to this geometric beauty, an Art Deco tiara by Boucheron. How interesting are those shapes, with the series of arches adorned by circles and tiny rectangles?
This piece is later Art Deco, from 1937. As I mentioned, it’s designed as a series of interlocking geometric arches, set with circular-, single-cut and baguette diamonds, all mounted in platinum. It is signed “Monture Boucheron” and comes with the original fitted case marked Boucheron, Paris. 26 Place Vendôme.
My favorite element is the circular and baguette cut diamonds adorning the tops of the arches – such an attractive, original touch. What do you think of this piece? Does this float your boat, or do you prefer a more traditional tiara?
This Art Deco tiara was listed in Sotheby’s November 2009 Magnificent Jewels sale. All images and info in this post are thanks to Sotheby’s.
