This exquisite diamond bow brooch was made by Fabergé. Fabergé was established in St Petersburg in 1842, and by the late nineteenth century, was Russia’s largest and best-known jewellery house. The house has become known for their royal commissions and their close ties to the family of Tsar Nicholas II. This magnificent piece features a central brilliant cut diamond that scintillates wonderfully, forming the tie of the bow. The loops of the bow are designed with pierced, openwork platinum work in a geometric design set throughout with glinting rose-cut diamonds. This important piece is an excellent example of Fabergé design and craftsmanship c.1913.
