This ultra-poetic brooch in the shape of a crescent moon was made around 1897-98, at the height of the naturalist movement. Over time, the master’s hallmark has been partially erased but the initials CT belonging to Charles Templier (grandfather of Raymond Templier, emblematic creator of the Art Deco period) still remain.

 

This extremely high quality brooch was made in one of the best French workshops. From the side, the fall of old cut grain-set diamonds is delicately held by magnificent oblong mounting of exquisite workmanship. The gold work is reminscent of the arcades of the Palais-Royal, which played host to jewelers in the 19th century.
