Edwardian era jewelry was all about femininity and elegance. For high jewelry, the palette was all about diamonds or diamonds with pearls.
Designers found themselves using platinum and diamonds in abundance. Although the bow motif was a holdover from the Victorian and Georgian eras, this new generation of jewels incorporated it to blend in with the delicate fabrics of the time.
A flower basket pendant brooch of platinum shows off delightful details. Well balanced asymmetry of the basket and handle is topped off with the delicately-appearing bow form at the apex. The piece is entirely encrusted with 115 diamonds, total weight of 1.55 carats (color H-I, clarity VS2-SI2).
Millegrain accenting and separate bezels provide a highly refined look. The “overlay” of a multi-petal flower on the front adds a slight three-dimensional quality to the composition. Vine-like blossoms clinging to the top of the basket climb their way upwards toward the warmth of the sun. In a word, exquisite.
