The first bracelet is flamboyant, colourful and vibrant; and hails from Paris, in France.
It dates from c.1890, and features a vividly yellow and red enamelled pansy flower in full bloom accompanied by a half-opened enamelled pansy bud. The curvy furled leafy shapes are silver, set with rose diamonds. These elements sit on a tubular, oval-shaped bracelet of rose gold.
According to the James Alfredson description:
”The pansy had sentimental significance in the nineteenth century with the pansy intimating “pensez a moi”- “think of me”. Since red also signified passion this was a gift of love. If only the pansy could reveal its secrets.”
