The Enchanting 1950s French Gold Fox Brooch: A Vintage Treasure

A captivating piece from the Vintage Fifties, this French gold brooch beautifully captures the era's charm. Crafted in 18K yellow gold, it takes the form of a fox, an emblem of cleverness and wit. Adorned with six single brilliant cut diamonds, its eyes are brought to life with two cabochon emeralds, and a carnelian at the tip of the nose adds a touch of warmth and realism. The playful design, hailing from circa 1950, is a fine example of the period's fascination with animal motifs, reflecting a deep appreciation for Mother Nature's artistry. This brooch is not just a piece of jewellery; it's a piece of history, carrying the spirit of a bygone era.
