A bold Retro lilac clip brooch set with five pink sapphires, set in gold and nine natural blue sapphires, set in white gold.
The origin of these steely blue sapphires is the “English Mine”, the Yogo Gulch, in the US State of Montana. During World War II, Montana sapphires were heavily mined for their industrial abrasive and cutting purposes but, as you can see in this fresh jewel, Montana sapphires also have incredible brilliance and an even colour, which they maintain in artificial light.
In the Language of Flowers, the lilac is the symbol of first love. Further symbolism associated with this flower includes beauty, pride and spirituality.
