A beautifully worked platinum brooch set with transitional cut and rose diamonds with a natural pearl in the centre. It has a lovely scalloped edge with fine millegrained work throughout. The word “millegrain” is from the French word “mille” for a thousand, and from “grain” as the same meaning in English, it refers to the tiny platinum bead work upon a metal precipice or edge. It was made circa 1900-1910.
