Straddling the Art Nouveau and Edwardian eras, this finely rendered French flower motif brooch presents as the epitome of realistic design dating to circa 1910.
Its frilled five petals are undulating and scalloped with the center showing staccato but prominent center stamens. This pin is designed in 18k yellow gold and soft blue and white enamel. The use of shaded hand painted enamels serves to highlight the curvature and three dimensional lifelike quality of the blossom.
Its center is a round cultured white pearl of 5 mm, with gold stamens, some cupping rose cut diamonds (total of .06 carats, I-J color, SI1-2 clarity) and an S curve stem. With its original C clasp.
