The Pearl Trefoil Brooch has three top loops which mimic the three-fold trefoil design present in architecture, heraldry, and more. It's sometimes called a quatrefoil, as there is a bottom scroll detail as well (though it differs from the top three). It includes five pearls - the largest in the center, plus one in each direction - nestled in an undulating diamond setting.
