Provenance

Sotheby's New York, December 6, 2006, Castellani & Giuliano, The Judith H. Siegel Collection, lot 124.

Description

Please note that the pearls have not been tested for natural origin.

The geometric design of this jewel, which appears strikingly modern, is actually based on an Elizabethan prototype; gemstones decorated in square panels can be found in portrait jewels of the time. A portrait of Elizabeth Brydges, maid-of-honor to Queen Elizabeth, shows the subject wearing a full parure of Renaissance jewelry including a brooch similar to the present one on her collar. See Ancestral Jewels by Diana Scarisbrick, pg. 13.
