Bar brooches enjoyed great popularity in the last decade of the 19th century and were produced in a variety of designs. In their simplest form, these brooches were plainly set with a single diamond but their functional shape offered Victorian jewelers a field in which to exploit their far-reaching fantasy and imagination. Thus bar brooches were decorated with crescents and stars, sprays of leaves and flowers, birds and insects and other motifs. They remained in vogue for several decades and were revived during the Art Deco era, produced with innovative geometric and color-contrasted inspirations by Art Deco jewelry designers.
