This pendant is a glorious example of Art Deco jewelry in the 1920s-1940s. Stunning workmanship, impeccable diamond quality and beautiful design that still stands the test of time. Nearly 100 years later, you can put this pin on a simple chain and wear it in the center of your neckline as a beautiful glittering pendant that will get as many looks and oohs and ahhs as it did years ago. Timeless! That is what the designers can only hope for. There has never been a better time for collecting estate jewelry than now too! This pin is valued at $22,000 and is available for less than half that price today. This pin could not even be made today for the appraised price with the same quality diamonds. The Courtland Jewels Tiffany pin was also substantially lower than all the others we saw for retail - pins that were priced around $15,000-$30,000.
Tiffany Tiffany & Co. is one of the most prominent purveyors of luxury goods in the United States, and has long been an important arbiter of style in the design of diamond engagement rings. A young Franklin Delano Roosevelt proposed to his future wife, Eleanor, with a Tiffany ring in 1904. Vanderbilts, Whitneys, Astors and members of the Russian imperial family all wore Tiffany & Co. jewels. And Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis preferred Tiffany china for state dinners at the White House. Although synonymous with luxury today, the firm started out rather modestly.
