Story

The 18th century role of topaz blossomed with the influx of precious gems from South America by the conquering Spaniards. Rare not to find pieces, this yellow topaz flower brooch is probably once part of a large hair ornament or other ornamental bauble.

Foiled and set closed back in silver, the floral form was ubiquitous during the bejeweled 1700s. Now sporting a brooch fitting, the topaz stones remain glorious and radiant.
