French Hearts and Flowers Brooch, Pearl, Diamond and Ruby in 18k Gold

Light and airy with the kind of delicate craftsmanship that is an art lost to time, this gorgeous French brooch showcased the height of the Belle Époque style.

Set with rose cut diamonds, pearls and one bright and eye-popping ruby, this handmade gold and platinum brooch plays on the heart motif but is loaded with flowers and delicate swirls. The brooch has that fantastic texture and attention to detail that only the best French jewelers could achieve. It measures 1.25 inches across and 1.4 inches top to bottom and has a rosy hue. The brooch is marked on the pin stem with the French eagle head mark indicating it was made in France of 18 karat gold, I've also acid tested it to verify the metal content. It weighs 4.9 grams. This brooch has two hangers on the back and so could easily be worn as a pendant or even converted to a necklace. Made around 1890.
