VAN CLEEF & ARPELS Black Opal Fish Brooch in Platinum.

A stunning black opal is the dominating centerpiece of this charming fish brooch from Van Cleef & Arpels. The brooch itself is a wearable sculpture; depicting a fish adorned with a cornucopia of rare colored diamonds ranging from fancy intense yellow to gray-blue. The oval opal, however, is filled with multiple bright tones of the spectrum throughout. The black opal mineraloid specifically is the rarest and most valuable of all opals. A combination of carbon and iron oxide gives the gemstone a dark body tone that further intensifies its already spectacular rainbow-toned phenomena. This is an absolutely fascinating gem to get lost in, surrounded by equally engaging diamonds and design – all fashioned by the famous French Maison in the 1960s.

Diamond weight approx. 6.00 carats total. Diamonds include: 0.55 carat VS2 Fancy Gray tapered baguette; 0.41 carat SI1 Fancy Gray-Blue rectangular cut; 0.17 carats SI2 Fancy Grayish-Blue trapezoid cut. Opal measures approx. 40mm x 29mm. Brooch measures approx. 3.5″ in length by 2.5″ and a height of 0.35″.

Includes three GIA Certificates for particular diamonds. Numbered and Signed “VCA”; circa 1960s.
