Cartier's Kinetic Flower: A Vintage Gold Brooch in Full Bloom

Every vintage jewellery dealer should surround him-/herself with as much reference work as possible and the book "Understanding Jewellery - The 20th Century" by David Bennet and Daniela Mascetti is an example of what should not be missing from the library.
In our case, there was an even bigger pleasant surprise that we've discovered within its pages than just the extent of documentation. We've found a brooch displayed that's remarkably similar to the vintage Cartier gold kinetic flower brooch in our jewellery collection.

While unfolding the five petals of gold gauze, a trembleuse heart of diamonds, sapphires, rubies and emeralds arises from this Fifties 18K yellow gold flower brooch signed by Cartier.
With all its colour and gimmickry, this meticulously crafted statement piece can portray your every mood. Wear it with the flower wide open, and let your own magnificence radiate through the flickering gems as they jitter on top of their stems with every move you make. Or wear the flower as a closed bud and present a more mysterious and timid character full of promise with the potential of blossoming.
Oh who are we kidding, this Cartier piece doesn't need our humble words. Let it speak for itself and you will see that this striking jewel simply fulfills everything one desires from any occasion.
