Brooch of Coral and Jade Depicting Chrysanthemum Blossom and Leaves

About

This spectacular and unique brooch features a hand-carved coral chrysanthemum blossom executed with such skill and artistry that if you lay the brooch on a table, look away from it, then look back at it, it will completely fook your eye. It looks real. These coral petals have wilt to them. This carving is so fine it will make you hold your breath. Accompanying the blossom are three bright, saturated green nephrite jade leaves. Together, chrysanthemum blossom and jade leaves reside on a brilliant 18K yellow gold scaffolding. The metalwork is so lovely it's a genuine pity that this brooch isn't reversible. The coral is a light salmon color and has several beautiful streaks of white. It's almost an angel skin coral. The chrysanthemum has many meanings in the Chinese culture, one of which is longevity. Perhaps this is why, then, the coral is in such flawless condition. The carved coral appears in pristine condition, with the normal and minor imperfections expected of natural coral but no damage, chips or cracks. This midcentury-era brooch has been seriously well-cared-for. This brooch is completely unisex. How fine and handsome it looks pinned to the lapel of my treasured 1960's Pierre Cardin blazer. It measures 75.24 mm in length, 38.92 mm in width.
