This turquoise and onyx buckle is most likely one of four executed for Cartier, Paris in 1922. Bearing the jeweller's mark H D with a flower to the centre, it was made by the Parisian atelier Droguet who was one of the house's principal manufacturers of platinum jewellery set with gemstones in the first quarter of the 20th Century.
