Royal Tudor Pearl Drop Brooch

This glamorous brooch, elevated with Swarovski® crystals and cultured freshwater pearls, honors the splendid adornments worn by Ellen Maurice in Marcus Gheeraerts the Younger's portrait (1597) at The Met. The Welsh heiress is poised in a dramatic dress embellished with lustrous pearls, which were known as the "Queen of gems" in the Elizabethan era. Gheeraerts was the preeminent painter in the late Elizabethan and early Jacobean courts, esteemed for the way he so masterfully rendered sumptuous fabrics and sparkling jewels. 14K gold plate with cultured freshwater pearls, and Swarovski® crystals. Measures 2.5 x 1.74 in.
