A pretty posy, indeed.
This contemporary kunzite flower brooch by Boucheron is designed as a circular-cut diamond sculpted flower, centering upon a cushion-cut kunzite. The kunzite is within a marquise-cut diamond surround, the pistil and circular-cut diamond stamen mounted en tremblant. The flower is supported by the baguette-cut diamond undulating stem, decorated with two marquise-cut diamond buds and mounted in platinum.
I just think it’s lovely. I love the little diamond leaves, the angle of the stem, and the delicate points of the petals. I don’t really wear brooches, but if I did, I would want one of them to look like this kunzite flower. Maybe pinned on a scarf, or on the shoulder of a dress? What would you do with it?
