During the 1920's Chinese design was all the rage. Women adorned themselves in jewelry from China and carved gemstones in traditional designs were very popular. This brooch is sodalite (a member of the feldspathoid mineral group) carved with a Lotus in full bloom. The deeply carved design gives the gem a 3-dimensional quality. To keep all of the focus on the carved stone it is set almost invisibly in a silver frame. Circa 1920s.
