Romance... all tied up in a bow
A sparkling tip of the hat to the bow... an enduring & iconic symbol of romance
Classic and feminine, the bow is a fine jewelry motif that never seems to go out of style. Traditionally seen as a symbol of love and marriage, the bow motif first appeared in jewelry in the 17th century French royal court of Louis XIV, when gold or silver was delicately shaped into loose double bows covered with gemstones and attached to necklaces or brooches. In an era when emotions were rarely expressed, the wearing of bow jewelry was highly significant, a bow pendant worn on a ribbon around the neck conveyed a playful side, while a bow-shaped brooch pinned near the heart was a sign of being in love.
Its re-appearance over and over again, in some of the world’s most coveted fine jewelry collections, shows that the beautiful bow motif is as relevant today as it was in the 17th century. The All Bow to Romance Brooch is a bejeweled tip of the hat to this enduring and iconic symbol of romance.
