A fabulous and playful Edwardian ‘harlequin’ bar brooch dating from circa 1905. The 11 rub over set gemstones include deep red garnets, a muted green peridot, an electric light blue zircon, vary hue topaz, a lovely violet amethyst and a royal blue sapphire amongst others; each hand cut and polished with its own unique charm. Most of these gems would have originated in the Indio-asia region and amassed over several trips before being set in Europe. The rainbow effect of many colours was associated with the traditional costume of the Harlequin in the Italian Commedia del’Arte hence the term we now use for multi-gem pieces from this period of the early 20th century.
