An Art Deco jade, ruby, agate and diamond brooch, circa 1925. The oval jade plaque carved to depict a phoenix, symbol of renewal and immortality, within a geometric surround of banded agate, circular-cut rubies and old brilliant-cut diamonds, cased by J. E. Caldwell. #ArtDeco #brooch
The rising of the phoenix symbolizes that a person has gone through difficult times, but has resurrected and survived. It means that he or she has arisen from flames as a winner, beating all life challenges and defeating hard times.
