Ask a question

Soft lace bows were a favourite inspiration for early 20th century jewellers.

The best were individually handcrafted in platinum, as this beauty in its blue velvet fitted heart-shaped box has been.

The challenge of giving a hard metal into the appearance of artless softness has succeeded.

A lack of symmetry in the design helps, so too do the undulating curves and the delicate piercing throughout.

The quality antique diamonds are in a tight pavé setting, glittering from every angle.

In its day this would have adorned a lace and silk ballgown.

Today, wear it on your favourite jacket or woolly jumper. Its perfect for those Zoom meetings!
