The development toward the end of the seventeenth century of the multifaceted, brilliant-cut for diamonds improved on previous techniques and gave these precious gems an incredible sparkle. This resulted in a fashion for gemstone jewelry that dominated throughout the eighteenth century. A dazzling gold and silver flower- shaped brooch (French, ca. 1810) in the collection of the Victoria and Albert Museum is lavishly set with brilliant-cut diamonds, rubies, and emeralds. Our sparkling Belle Fleur Jeweled Pin is based on this eye-catching original.
