Jewel of the day: Bijoux Heart Leaf + Wheat Sheaf Brooch
Bijoux Heart is a British brand that has looked to the past for inspiration but given their costume jewelry pieces a modern feel. Their work reminds me a lot of Miriam Haskell, with burnished gold findings, tiny seed pearls and an artful use of crystals.
This brooch is described as, “Large poured glass handmade leaves with branches of Swarovski handmade wheat sheaf crystal in a beautiful bouquet design, large Baroque pearl sits at the base of five large Swarovski baguette crystals which forms a high dome from the base, subtle shades of jonquil and clear crystal with finer details of sea pearls & crystal pave marquis cut stones “truly spectacular construction and scale” measures approx. 170cm in length and approx. 90cm in width. on a weighted filigree base and large pin, plated in 24ct gold.”
This sells for £790.
