This is a more than wonderful brooch in a shape of a romantic and sweet bouquet of violets, entirely handmade. Violets are made of amethyst with diamonds in each one. The leaves have shiny edges and are made of jade. 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. This brooch is not to be missed, the pictures speak by themselves. These kind of brooches are hard to find as they were made only here in Europe the most in Austria and Germany. When I'm lucky to find a lovely one I take it immediately. This is another wonderful piece. A very desirable collectors piece.
