Pearl Petals Brooch from The Met Museum


Our pretty floral pin is modeled on a beautiful brooch in The Met collection. Probably made during the 19th century and of unknown origins, the brooch’s elaborate design abounds with hundreds of tiny pearls on a delicate gold backing. Diminutive natural seed pearls from India were particularly popular among makers of Georgian jewelry in Britain (1714-1830), who wove them into sumptuous adornments for fashionable ladies.
