    Cf: Yvonne Markowitz, Elizabeth Hamilton, Oscar Heyman The Jeweler's Jeweler, Boston, 2017, page 49 for brooches of similar design.

  • Catalogue Essay

    Marked by two vibrant contrasting colours, these two brooches boast extraordinary craftsmanship. Every single calibré-cut citrine and amethyst were meticulously fashioned and mounted with precision, so the fluid outline perfectly depicts the delicacy of a flower petal. This calls for not only extreme patience, but thorough understanding of gemstones and tremendous skills typical of Oscar Heyman’s creations.
