Hawaii brooch

Van Cleef & Arpels | C. 1940 | France | Gold, ruby, sapphire, yellow sapphire, diamond

The bouquet shape of this brooch is formed by colourful gemstones. This form of jewellery has a long history; the difference lies in the colour of the gemstones and the shape of the flower branches. Van Cleef & Arpels has many wonderful works in the floral form, including bouquet brooches which were popular at the time. The famous Duchess of Windsor once customised the same bouquet brooch.
