Blooming heart

Touching heart brooch in gold, enamel & pearls, Great Britain circa 1900

Hearts, love knots, bows and blossoms formed the basis of the world of forms at the end of the 19th century: the most popular designs of those years for brooches, rings and earrings revolved around the theme of love. The present romantic brooch was created about 120 years ago and charms as on the first day. The work is designed as a heart formed by a red and gold band. A small flower of gold and pearls is framed by this ribbon. This creates an elegant colour scheme of red, gold and white, which once again underlines the romantic motif. In addition to the actual design with its figurative, romantic motif, we also liked the finely coordinated surface textures of the brooch. The pearls shimmer in their soft, velvety lustre, which is contrasted with the smooth, hard sheen of the red enamel. The brooch, which came to us from London and was probably made in Great Britain, is in very good condition and makes a gift that is as beautiful as it is romantic.
