An un usual “Giardinetti” brooch that was made circa 1940. Flowers were a fashionable theme in jewellery during the second half of the 18th century. and ‘giardinetti’ items (from the Italian, meaning ‘little garden’) became popular. They had tiny blossoms set with an assortment of precious stones, asymmetrically arranged in a basket, vase or pot and were given as tokens of love. This idea continued and is still popular today. The vase is composed of a black opal with diamonds arranged around it. The flowers are different coloured gemstones, diamonds, rubies, sapphires, yellow sapphires, amethyst, pearls, aquamarines, olivine, smokey quartz, rutilated quartz and citrines. This brooch has a secure roll over catch and an added safely chain. What a wonderful gift to someone that you love
