Enamel and Diamond Orchid Stickpin, Circa 1900
ABOUT THIS BROOCH
While the earth creates an incredible array of gems beneath its surface, flowers are the earth's gems that brighten its surface. This charming stickpin beautifully represents both. Blooming from a gleaming gold stem, an exquisitely hand-fabricated orchid--its petals painted with hues of periwinkle blue, deep rose pink, spring green, and soft yellow enamel--sparkles brightly at the center with a lively European-cut diamond. A double delight. 1900. In 14K gold.
