Los Angeles, CA, June 26, 2014 --(PR.com
)-- The outstanding beauty and quality of a brooch is unmatched and reminds individuals of a different time, a time before tragedy struck and John F. Kennedy was both President and Time’s Person of the Year.
Made from rock crystal, sapphire, diamond, and fashioned in an Art deco bow design, the brooch was initially sold through the Sotherby’s second auction of the Kennedy Estate. According to the preface of the catalogue written by Caroline Kennedy, the items she auctioned off at the auction titled “Property from the Kennedy Home”, included the antique brooch and belonged to her parents during the years they spent at the White House.
The brooch contains approximately 2.00 carats worth of diamonds and measures 2.25 inches long and 0.75 inches wide. Additionally, the Art Deco bow also comes with the original fitted red leather box that it was first purchased in. Moreover, Calibre-cut sapphires and European-cut diamonds frame the bow’s carved and frosted rock-crystal panels. This excellent condition brooch is perfect for anybody who is interested in a sleek and elegantly designed accessory that has a long, interesting, and controversial historical connection.
