Celebrated artist and high-jeweller CINDY CHAO The Art Jewel proudly returned to the prestigious TEFAF Maastricht 2020 to present her awaited Black Label Masterpieces.
Shining bright as part of the exceptional suite of jewelled creations is the “Green Plumule Brooch” and the “Green Plumule Earrings”, two breathtaking Masterpieces from the Feather Collection.
GREEN PLUMULE BROOCH:
487 pieces of fancy-cut emeralds – total of 172.58 carats.
Seventeen of the emeralds come from Colombia, with the largest being 30.06 carats.
With each setting angle and height accurately calculated, the emeralds are set in an interlacing, embossment-like manner to create a peculiar three-dimensional contour for the brooch, thereby portraying the plumule’s airiness.
The brooch is composed of 14 barbs, all linked to the yellow diamond-paved rachis with flexible joints that give life and motion to the masterpiece. The back of the brooch is as fascinating as the front, with the rachis painted with a layer of black enemal and paralleled with diamonds and yellow diamonds. Fifteen cm long, the Green Plumule Brooch weighs less than 49 g – truly feather light. Considering the way emeralds are set on the brooch, their carat weight, the brooch’s one-of-a-kind silhouette, and the supporting craftsmanship behind the piece, the Green Plumule Brooch can be said to be the boldest, the most crazy, and the most exquisite feather brooch in the world.
GREEN PLUMULE EARRINGS:
90 carats - pair of pear-shaped vivid green Colombian emeralds.
These are the first Black Label earrings from the Feather Collection and includes two briolette-cut brown diamonds, weighing 9.60 carats altogether, which were specially cut from rough diamonds according to the need of the aesthetic. The earrings’ hue and contour are enriched through tsavorites, alexandrites and color-changing garnets.
These Green Plumule Brooch and the Green Plumule Earrings once again demonstrate CINDY CHAO’s cutting-edge titanium craftsmanship to create the world’s lightest Art Jewels.
