“A woman loves orchids, because they make her feel like she’s floating on a cloud of possibility.”
— Quote from the movie A Perfect Man
This fabulous gold, platinum ruby and fancy diamond orchid brooch measures more than 3 inches and is as about as much a statement piece as you could ever want.
An estate piece, the brooch was originally designed and created circa 1936. It is currently a work in progress being recreated and hand-crafted by Oscar Heyman‘s jewelry makers using the same techniques that produced this beautiful design nearly 80 years ago.
