Historically, man has always been prone to be inspired by nature, which he saw all around him, and this is a trend that was constant through the ages. In Europe, Naturalistic jewelry, decorated with clearly recognizable flowers and fruit, became hugely popular during the 19 th century. Large spray of assorted flowers would often be worn as earrings, necklaces or body ornaments. Some of the diamond flowers are set on springs, which would increase their sparkle considerably as the wearer moved By the 1850s the delicate early designs had given way to more extravagant and complex compositions of flowers and foliage.
At the same time, flowers were used to express love and friendship. The colors in nature were matched by colored gemstones to create intricate and ultra- feminine pieces of jewelry. In modern times, From Chanel’s camellia to Christian Dior’s lily of the valley, flowers have been a constant source of inspiration to jewelers.
