Utterly marvelous, this Retro Van Cleef and Arpels “Passe-Partout” flower brooch is an exquisite example of the vibrance of vintage. The lavish brooch is crafted of a glowing high polish yellow gold in the form of a spray of flowers. Two large gemstone flowers blossom in the center of the brooch, one formed of lemon hued sapphires with a blue sapphire center, and the other of clear blue sapphires with a ruby center. Curved ruby studded boughs radiate from the center and a band of invisibly-set rubies binds the stems of the brooch. This vintage estate signed designer Retro Van Cleef and Arpels gemstone flower brooch is one of the most recognized Van Cleef designs, a similar brooch is noted in the Van Cleef book by Sylvie Raulet on page 199. This vintage VCA brooch closes with a double pin stem. Includes manufacturer’s box.
