Created in 1939, this clip depicting a precious bouquet illustrates the Maison’s inexhaustible creativity when it comes to representing nature. On a yellow gold and platinum mount, two dazzling flowers, their hearts set with canary diamonds, are held together by a radiant and ethereal bow. Reflecting a classic style, one of the corollas is in full bloom, while the other is partially open, revealing only the tip of its pistils. The contrast between yellow and white diamonds, as well as the mingling of different stone cuts (round and baguette), imbue this nature-themed piece with a modern aesthetic.
