This eighteen carat white gold and gem set brooch is designed as a tree. It was made in Geneva by Benoit de Gorski in the 1990's. The tree is set with faceted emeralds, rubies and yellow and blue sapphires, held by a brilliant-cut diamond. The trunk of the tree too is set with brilliant-cut diamonds.
Jewellery is in Benoit de Gorsky's genes. His grandfather Constantin de Gorsky headed Baume&Mercier from 1947 to 1958, his great-grandfather Carlo Ponti, was a jeweller in Italy, and his great-great-grandfather Jules Perrier, a director of Patek Philippe. They pointed the way to Benoit, who started as a watchmaker at Longines at the age of 18. He decided to establish his own brand BENOIT DE GORSKI in 1980, creating high-quality jewellery for a discerning international clientele.
