I adore the lavish, sprawling expansiveness of this brooch. It’s like a floral explosion. It’s designed as the head of a flower, made of titanium and centered by a 22.32 carat kunzite. The petals of the flower are lined with brilliant-cut diamonds and – my favorite part – where the backs of the petals are showing, the titanium is completely encrusted with diamonds.
This brooch is also titanium, but of a more colorful sort. This more stylized flower is set in the center with a cascade of rose-cut pear-shaped pink sapphires weighing 16.16 carats. The sapphire cascade is accented by round diamonds. The titanium petals of this brooch are also outlined in diamonds, bringing the total diamond weight to approximately 4.70 carats.
Both of these brooches were listed in Sotheby’s auctions. All images and info are thanks to Sotheby’s.
