The brooches shown here exemplify the variations Napier often created around a central design element. The first piece features a circular disk and glass-stone inset with an Asian-inspired metal disk. A variation of this piece featured the addition of a pierced metalwork plaque suspending dangles. A complementing charm bracelet was also part of this collection. After 22 years of studying Napier jewelry, we have not seen matching earrings or a necklace, which speaks to the rarity of specific pieces. #napierjewelry #napierhistory #napierbrooch #thenapierbook
