Rare 80s 90s Yves Saint Laurent Rive Gauche gold plate brooch statement iconic piece


Absolutely stunning vintage Yves Saint Laurent brooch comprising a triangular top bar with 3 strands of linked diamond/kite shaped pieces. The top bar is shiny gold (I'm assuming gold-plate as I understand all these vintage pieces were) with raised 'nugget' type texture. The hanging diamond shaped pieces have a light bark effect with raised relief and cut line/channel design. Hints of brutalist design with a softer feel.

A truly iconic geometric high end designer piece. I've not been able to find one similar but this does seem to be an earlier piece, bearing the stamp 'Yves Saint Laurent Rive Gauche Made in France' and not the more current YSL signature. Though please do correct me if you have further knowledge - I would love to know more.

Comes in original pink velvet drawstring pouch marked Yves Saint Laurent Rive Gauche. The bag does have some age related spots.

Length - 10.8cm
