Soviet diamond and emerald 18ct gold foliate brooch
Item Details
Description
Soviet brooch made in 1980, Uvelirprom Jewellery Factory, Moscow. Of circular form set with 15 square-cut emeralds and 76 pear-cut and circular-cut diamonds in an openwork scroll and foliate design, mounted in 18ct yellow and white gold. The back is hallmarked with the purity, the government inspection stamp and the maker's mark. 
As Soviet jewellers mostly worked with 14ct gold, this 18ct brooch is very rare, as 18ct gold didn't become widely used until after the collapse of USSR. Furthermore, this is a very elegant piece, whereas most Soviet jewellery was far from refined. This brooch comes with an electronic certificate confirming the origins of its marks, and the certificate has been entered into a database from which it can be retrieved in the future.
The "Ю" was the maker's mark of Uvelirprom Jewellery Factory, which, founded in 1926, is the oldest jewellery factory in Russia, specialising mainly in diamond jewellery.
