This bow brooch, typical of the jewels of the 1830s, features a dense surface patterning of spirals (known as cannetille work) and granules (grainti)—both popular techniques of the period. Jewels of the 1830s were often vibrantly colored, andm therefore, turquoise was a popular choice. The brooch is part of a parure with matching earrings. The jewel takes the form of a tasseled bow of gold filigree set with turquoises and pearls. It was most likely made in Malta between 1835 and 1840.
