A 1940's diamond brooch by BVLGARI

This beautiful brooch was designed by Bvlgari in the 1940's. Set in different cut diamonds and mounted in platinum it looks like a transition piece between late Art Deco an the Retro style. The symmetry and the use of different cut stones is clearly Art Deco, however the volume and tridimensional semi spheres hint towards the future Retro pieces.

The brooch will be auctioned by Christie's Milan on May 26th.
