On the 3rd day of Christmas my True love gave to me….Queen Elisabeth Style,Paisley Swarovski Crystal Jewellery Brooch Pin!
Yesterday I was writing about how this simple but most popular Jewellery is such a fundamental part of any jewellery collection in any culture. Today im focussing on a Brooch in the Janeo collections, which is one the most adorable designs and has a long history attached to this style: I’m taking about our Maharaja Paisley Swarovski and Czech Crystal Brooch.
MaThe Paisley is a iconic design and its special as it’s a shape taken by Famous Couturier Designers and adapted into their collections. But The ( leaf) Paisley is a Indian Design made famous by the British Rule in India, and by Mackintosh and the Famous School of art in Scotland , having used the leaf shape in the Shawls which were manufactured in Paisley, the name of the town in Scotland, and hence the name Paisley now for the leaf shape.
In Jewellery, it was Cartier who made it famous making individual pieces of Paisley brooches in real diamonds. One of the most famous was for the British Queen Mother, THE PALM LEAF BROOCH, created in 1938 by Cartier especially for King George V for her beloved, and then in 20012 the Present Queen inherited this gorgeous Paisley Crystal Brooch Pin and now wears it often, its said to be one of her favourites .
