Cartier Citrine and Gold Chrysanthemum Brooch


This opulent citrine brooch belongs to a series of original jewels created by Cartier London, led by Louis Cartier’s youngest sibling Jacques. Clearly created by a free and confident hand, this exuberant gold chrysanthemum blossom deserves its own garden party, with more than thirty total carats of rich-hued citrines decorating the flower's center. In the 1930s, Cartier London inspired jewelry collectors worldwide with jewelry featuring richly-colored Brazilian citrines in their full range of complementary hues, from pale citrus to cognac.
