Enamel, Gold, Rose-Cut Diamonds
The Victoria and Albert Museum
We’ve already had a look atanother spray ornament of diamonds. This one is a variation on the theme, showing the skill with which enamel was used in jewelry making. A bouquet of multi-colored flowers set with rose-cut diamonds and bound by a diamond and blue enamel ribbon is the centerpiece of this astoundingly beautiful and intricate bodice ornament. It could be worn independently or attached to a removable gold hook which served to elevate the ornament.
