This brooch represents an orchid with a Lapis lazuli, was entirely handmade and it is a unique piece.
This brooch of about 6 cm by 3,5 cm was made of pure silver (950/1000 with state stamp). The total weight of the jewel is 8 gr (without the fine stone). The clasp of the spindle is a silver ball joint, the needle is made of steel.
This designer jewel was forged by hand by the workshop of Galadrielle, a jewellery craftsman. To shape this original creation, the jeweller first made sketches and drawings before assembling silver plates and wires that were cut and welded together. To make the jewel precious and shiny, it has been completely polished by hand.
The brooch is surmounted by fine stone, a Lapis lazuli pearl 4.10 mm in diameter.
Lapis lazuli is a metamorphic rock containing silicates. This mineral is best known as an ornamental stone, opaque, blue in colour, between azure and ultramarine. Its use is very old, going back more than 7,000 years. This stone has a hardness of 5 on the Mohs scale. This mineral comes mainly from Afghanistan, in Badakhshan.
Due to the difference in light and screen settings, the color of the stone may be slightly different from the images.
Art creation made in South Burgundy from Galadrielle's workshop.
