Fabulous Large Georgian Natural Seed Pearl Brooch

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

From my personal collection this is, no doubt, one of the most wondrous examples of woven seed pearl jewelry. The design incorporates flowers, flourish, a bow, a knot and a lyre form in the center of the upper section. Symbolizing innocence, seed pearl jewelry was considered jewelry for a bride or bride to be. This grand brooch is multi-layered consisting of tiny pearls graduating to pearls ten times their size. All layers are woven and stitched to a mother of pearl back in which small holes were drilled for the thread to pass and fasten the ornament securely. All this is handwork done pearl by pearl, which makes it more the treasure. Excellent Condition
