14K Gold Artist Palette Pearl and Sapphire Pin

14K Gold Pin with Pearls and Sapphire in form of an Artist Palette and three painter's brushes. American, ca. 1950. In excellent condition. 1 3/4" x 1 1/4". Ex: Patti Esbia Estate Jewelry, Palm Beach, Florida. The use of seed pearls in fine jewelry throughout the latter part of the 19th century was immensely popular, with elaborate decorative brooches, tiaras, pins and earrings being very representative of Victorian fashion at the time. Prestigious jewelers such as Tiffany, Cartier and Boucheron studded their designs with these tiny gems to match the sensual decadence of La Belle Époque fashion.
