The bow, as an accessory, was popularized by the French, particularly the bow tie. It has always been an element of formal dress.
This very feminine vintage brooch is fashioned to form a tied bow, set on the side of a double wreath. The bow is strongly colored pink gold and pale green gold. The wreath is yellow gold. A prong set natural 5.5 mm faceted blue zircon centers the bow. Blue zircon was a popular choice from the 1920s-40s because of it's outstanding color, very high refraction, and striking contrast to pink gold. Size is 1 3/4" high x 1 1/2" wide. The pin closure is the old style of safety catch. It is marked 10K and has the maker's mark of SEMCO. Very good condition.
