I know I’ve probably blogged enough for the day when I find myself typing things like “pretty, shiny, pretty pretties.” Fun fact: I do often say things like that out loud to myself. It’s generally how my boyfriend knows I’m blogging.
But what else can you say about a brooch like this?
This is what Christie’s said about it:
“Centering upon a bezel-set pear-shaped fancy brownish pink diamond, weighing approximately 5.83 carats, within an old mine-cut diamond scalloped surround, topped by a bezel-set old European-cut diamond, the bottom suspending briolette-cut diamond drops with single-cut diamond foliate detail and and collet-set diamonds, mounted in platinum, circa 1910.”
This is what I have to say: Wow, that’s a big pink diamond. Shiny shiny pretty pretties. Happy Friday!
This brooch was listed in Christie’s 22 April 2010 Jewels auction. All images and info are thanks to Christie’s.
