Delicate Edwardian Beauty: Diamond Enamel Brooch
Bejeweled January Sale! Price reduced from $1950. Hurry sale ends January 18th!
Tropical plants and flowers such as the hibiscus were especially rare in Edwardian England because of the meticulous care and specific weather conditions needed for the plant to bloom. Consequently, the hibiscus flower was used in the language of flowers to convey “delicate beauty” and consumed by love.
Upon viewing this turn-of-the-20th century brooch of 14k yellow gold, we are all consumed by love with its perceived fragility of design. Please note the delicate stamens radiating from the center old mine cut diamond of about .15 carats.
The enamel decoration reveals the masterful craftsmanship of the piece with the detailed minute “veining” apparent on each petal of the blossom. Polychromatic enamel of purple, yellow, pink white and green contribute to the realism of this period item which just like a fine wine improving with age, the colors of the actual hibiscus flower darken and become more vivid over time.
Measurements: Length with stem is 1-9/16 inches (3.9 cm) in length including stem and 1-3/16 inches (3.1 cm) without. Weight of 8.6 grams (5.5 dwt).
Condition: Excellent; enamel, top and stem are superb; possible reinforcement to pin stem and C clasp visible only with magnification.
Date: Circa 1900.
Note: Diamond has not been removed from mount to preserve the integrity of the setting. Diamond weight has been approximated by measurement and formula and may vary from actual weight.
