Here’s an exquisite geranium leaf brooch.

Multi-coloured gold was a feature of late Georgian jewellery, and here we see it reinvented via Japanese aestheticism and techniques in the last part of the 19th century.

This is a jewel that for years was in my personal collection. I think it’s a wearable piece of art.


• Handmade in 18-carat yellow, rose and white gold
• Approximately 4.3cm (nearly 1 3/4 inches) long from end of stem to tip of leaf, 3.3cm (just over 1 1/4 inches) wide
• Weight is 10.3 grams
• In excellent antique condition
• Will come in a Karen Deakin gift box (the antique boxes are not included)
