A delightful Retro floral brooch worked in pink and yellow 14K gold. The blossom is represented by six grass green kite-shaped tourmalines arranged around a round-cut red tourmaline. A bud is represented by a single green tourmaline just below the bi-colored leaves. Simple floral brooches that emphasized unusual and colorful gemstones were particularly popular in the Retro era, although the use of tourmalines is somewhat unusual. Tested and guaranteed 14K gold.
