About

A diamond-set flowerhead brooch. The Old European cut and Old Mine Cut diamonds are set in silver with closed backs.

As illustrated in Understanding Jewellery by David Bennet & Daniela Mascetti, pg 69, Plate 30. “Simple flowerhead and spiky spray brooches held sway in the late eighteenth century and retained their appeal in the first decades of the 1800s.” “…the pin is a later addition. Originally such brooches would have been sewn to the dress.”
