A charming pendant and brooch. This piece depicts a lovely openwork basket of flowers, all set with rubies, glittering diamonds, and bright fancy yellow diamonds. The handle of the basket is suspended from a naturalistic diamond bow. This piece was made in the twentieth century but draws inspiration from the floral and bow motifs of the Edwardian era. This piece would look lovely worn on a chain or fitted as a brooch on a boucle summer jacket.
