An important 1920s stirrup-shaped diamond, pearl and onyx brooch, by Cartier Paris. Pavé-set cushion cut diamonds are punctuated with linear custom-cut, buff-top onyx accents. Featuring a single large and lustrous natural pearl, measuring 8.6 mm, with the two outer terminals each set with a natural pearl, of approximately 8 mm, and connected by an onyx rondelle. The brooch comes with a GCS report, dated 19th February 2019, stating that the pearls are natural saltwater pearls. The piece bears the Cartier Workshop Maker’s Mark on the pin.

Vivienne Becker notes: "A fine and rare example of Cartier style of the 1920s, when the modernist monochrome combination of black and white was all the rage in fashion as in jewels, interpreted, as here, in diamonds and black onyx. The shape of this brooch is distinctively Cartier: the stirrup or wide ‘U’ shape, a bar with upturned ends, originating in the 1910s, was often used for the surmounts of pendant brooches and then later for more horizontal brooch designs."
