Naturalistic jewellery, decorated with clearly recognisable flowers or fruit, emerged with the Romantic movement in the early 19th century. It remained popular for many decades. This piece is notable for its particularly vivid combination of colours. With its matching pair of long earrings, its impact would have been considerable.
