An incredible brutalist diamond accent opal glass brooch set in solid 14k gold. Featuring an orgnanic triangular frame with 3 prong-set brilliant diamond accents on each corner, and an offcenter oblong opal cabochon secured in a 3-prong bezel setting. The yellow gold setting reminds of tree bark with raised/engraved designs and black oxidized accents in the edges. We believe the synthetic opal to be made from a type of glass with an internal coating that refacts light to create the iridescent inclusions. There is a milky white discoloration on the inside of the glass, possibly from heat or moisture, but we are uncertain of the exact nature of the damage. The diamonds may also be synthetic and we cannot guarantee their authenticity. Regardless, this piece remains robust, finely detailed, and magnificent to look at.
The brooch is secured with a horizontal safety pin at the top of the setting, but there is also a small hole at the base of the frame for a necklace loop if someone wanted to wear it as a pendnat. The back of the setting has been marked '14k' and the gold has been acid tested for authenticity. Overall good/fair vintage condition with described imperfections and minor wear/discoloration.
