Weighs approximately 14.1 gram. Approximately 6.1 cm (2 6/16 inches) in length from furthest stem curve to furthest pod tip. There are seven beautiful pearls representing green peas which are almost three quarters encapsulated within the pod , and approximately eleven small diamonds in the foliage near the tip of the pea pod, and three small diamonds in each calyx or sepal (there are four sepals altogether) thus twelve small diamonds near the stem, so the entire brooch contains approximately twenty three small diamonds.
Fuset even though French practiced his craftsmanship mostly in Spain, and this jewel is one of his earlier and perhaps his best work, this jewel was so popular that many jewelers attempted to copy with very little success, for the craftsmanship is absolutely superb, fully dimensional to resemble an entire pod with all its peas. This is the most beautiful and accurate jewel resembling peas in a pod, no? Do you love peas or pea soup as much as I do?This brooch could easily be made to wear as a pendant if you so desired. Pearls represent purity while diamonds represent eternity, so eternally pure as all of Gods great creations, and as the saying goes like peas in a pod which indicate how similar certain people are and especially if they are within a family since the apple does not fall far from the tree!
So if your looking for a one of a kind jewel representing family, then jewels do not get any better than this incredible novelty! Feel free to check out my other Museum Quality Collection!
