A fantastic large 18ct gold brooch that was made circa 1820. It is set with garnets, sapphires, turquoise, moonstone, rock crystal, citrine, pink tourmaline and peridots. Cornucopia comes from the Latin cornu copiae, which translates literally as “horn of plenty.” A traditional staple of feasts, the cornucopia is believed to represent the horn of a goat from Greek mythology. According to legend, it was from this horn that the god Zeus was fed as an infant. Later, the horn was filled with flowers and fruits, and given as a present to Zeus. The filled horn (or a receptacle resembling it) has long served as a traditional symbol in art and decoration to suggest a store of abundance, and is a symbol of thanksgiving.
