A Glimpse of 1780: Rococo Gold and Diamond Pin

An exquisite circa 1780 Rococo pin, its design a playful dance of asymmetry in line with the frivolity of late Baroque art. Crafted in 18k yellow gold and silver, this piece captures the essence of the era with ornate decorations of rockwork, shells, and scrollwork. It is centred around a prominent rose cut diamond of approximately 1.60 ct, set on foil to enhance its radiance - a testament to the ingenuity of the period's craftsmanship. A charming relic, it reflects the luxurious sophistication of Louis XV's France.

Style
Rococo - Rococo (less commonly roccoco) also referred to as "Late Baroque" is an 18th century style which developed as Baroque artists gave up their symmetry and became increasingly more ornate, florid, and playful. Rococo rooms were designed as total works of art with elegant and ornate furniture, small sculptures, ornamental mirrors, and tapestry complementing architecture, reliefs, and wall paintings. It was largely supplanted by the Neoclassic style. In 1835 the Dictionary of the French Academy stated that the word Rococo "usually covers the kind of ornament, style and design associated with Louis XV's reign and the beginning of that of Louis XVI". It includes therefore, all types of art produced around the middle of the 18th century in France.

Style specifics
Rococo is a style of decoration that followed, c.1730, the baroque style in France (where it was also called rocaille), the principal features of which are asymmetry of ornament and a repertoire consisting to a considerable extent of rockwork, shells, flowers, foliage, and scrollwork. It was developed in France under Louis XV, 1715-74, and spread to Italy, Germany, and Austria and to a lesser extent to England.
