18K Yellow Gold Pearl and Gambling Counter Brooch, designed by Elizabeth Locke, ca. 1992

Lofty says:

I love how Elizabeth Locke incorporates real antique items into her jewelry, giving it a timelessness and yet a fun pleasantly incongruous look. Here she takes an old Chinese mother-of-pearl gambling counter typical of the second half of the 19th century, mounts it in a gold frame and hangs three baroque style pearls from it. She has mixed up countries, centuries and styles, and it reminds me of how many centuries ago, wealthy Europeans would put gold mounts on exquisite and rare Chinese porcelain vessels for display. - Ursula LeBaron
