A Dazzling Dahlia Brooch
This magnificent brooch was made by the jewellers René Boivin in Paris in 1959. The Dahlia flower was designed by Juliette Moutarde, the chief designer for the house at that time, and is made of eighteen-carat yellow gold, demantoid garnets and citrines. Each petal of this flower is formed by an oval faceted citrine. The 24 citrines are mounted so that they overlap, each in its own gold setting, to create a three-dimensional jewel in which the light is beautifully reflected in the stones. The leaf and stem are set with 28 demantoid garnets. Only two pieces, of which this is one, were made to this design.
