Hand fabricated in silver topped gold, circa 1870, this fanciful adornment is fully articulated. A stylized flower, composed of a lustrous 8.29 mm pearl encircled by sparkling diamond petals, is elegantly framed by two outstretched diamond set leaves. The flowerhead dances below a luminous 6.76 mm pearl, stacked above a .80 carat old mine diamond, that gracefully transitions into a curvaceous diamond lined frame to support the drop. Stunning!
