This is a more than wonderful brooch in a shape of a romantic and sweet bouquet, entirely handmade. Violets are made of amethyst with  diamonds in each one. The leaves have shiny edges and are made of jade. A wonderful unusual brooch, other than the violets this brooch shows other flowers of Victorian memory, lily of the valley and primroses, everyone with its own leaf. I usually have seen bouquet brooches made with only one kind of flower so this one in my opinion is rare. It is beautifully hand crafted, a real joy for the eyes. A rare and lovely jewel. This brooch is wonderfully worked as only in the past goldsmiths were able to do. I have never seen anything of sweetest. A real bouquet made of real gemstones and gold. It looks beautiful when worn and will be surely noticed.  The gemstones are totally genuine and so lovely. I think that you have never seen anything of more beautiful than this one, this jewel is really spectacular. You'll get compliments for it. This brooch is not to be missed, the pictures speak by themselves. This is another wonderful piece. A very desirable collectors piece.
