A beautiful and rare Giardinetti brooch (Italian for garden brooch) that was made circa 1750. This Georgian Giardinetti brooch is set with diamonds, rubies, topaz and emeralds in silver. Giardinetti pieces were first made in Italy in the late 17th century, designed as bouquets of flowers. They are symbols of love and were given as love tokens.
