The brooch has 10 semi-spherical pearls, 15 Old European-cut diamonds with an approximate total weight of 1.25 carats and a polished emerald drop. Gemological Institute of America certificate #2171449596 states the pearls are natural saltwater button pearls. Circa 1900.

During the first decade of the Twentieth century Marcus & Co. offered a variety of Revivalist-style jewelry. Egyptian-inspired pieces along with Renaissance Revival and Mughal style were created. This brooch is composed in sarpech form, which were turban brooches that were worn by Hindu and Muslim princes.

The venerable firm of Marcus & Co. was established in 1892 by William, Herman and George Elder Marcus, with a shop in New York. The firm distinguished itself as an early proponent of the Art Nouveau style in America, of which this ring is an exquisite example. During the Art Deco period of the 1920's, the firm continued producing fine jewels in this new style and expanded with branches in London, Paris, and Palm Beach.
