Lily of the Valley

An elegant Victorian mourning brooch with a flowing spray of lilies of the valley crafted in rose gold and set with small pearls.  During the Victorian era,  Lilies of the valley were a symbol innocence, humility and the return of happiness.  Crafted in onyx and 14kt gold, circa 1880.

The backs of all fine jewels should be as nicely finished as the fronts.  The reverse of this brooch is well crafted.  Note the sturdy back plate and the strong pin stem and catch that secure the brooch when worn.  Jewels of the Victorian era  were for the most part hand-assembled and the care of the artisans can be seen in the finished work.
