Lacloche Frères

An Important Art Deco Platinum and Diamond Tassel Brooch

A stunning Art Deco diamond tassel brooch by Lacloche Frères, circa 1925, made in platinum the brooch is designed as a horizontal cartouche shaped openwork panel with crested top formed of both curved and geometric lines, centred with a vertical marquise shape diamond in rubover setting with a row of baguette diamonds to either side and further set with round diamonds, suspended from this are seven finely articulated rows of round diamonds in rubover settings, the rows tapering gently inwards to a point, with a single pin brooch fitting to the reverse. This magnificent brooch is a wonderful example of Art Deco jewellery and of the creative designs and beautiful craftsmanship that Lacloche Frères produced during this period. The fine articulation of the diamond tassels ensures they have superb movement and fluidity, feeling as close to fabric tassels as it’s possible for metal and diamonds to get. This is a treasure of a jewel that deserves to be worn and loved for another hundred years and more.
