Put on a little crown!

Late Victorian brooch of gold & natural pearls, around 1900

A small crown of gold and fine natural pearls adorns the present fine pin of the years around 1900 together with a small shamrock as a symbol of luck. Fine natural pearls set the hoop and prongs of the classic noble crown, which appears so particularly magnificent as well as the leaves of the clover. Pearls were at all times the classic trimming of precious jewelry. Moreover, natural pearls have always belonged to the chambers of art and curiosities of the rulers of Europe. The value of natural pearls compared to cultured pearls is obvious - after all, like natural gemstones, they are small natural wonders. The price for natural pearls in the years around 1900 was about the same as for diamonds of the same size and pearls for a necklace were usually purchased individually for cost reasons and collected until a strand was together. They are always wonderful unique pieces of nature - which are hard to find today. As a stylish accessory, the brooch can still set a fashionable accent today - not only on the lapels of luck-seeking nobles.
