Authentic head jewel, this 19th century hairstyle accessory will adorn and sublimate your hair and give it a romantic final touch.
Gemological point: it is a gem of organic origin. Only the branched calcareous trunks of certain corals are used in jewellery. Its colour is due to organic pigments close to carotene: varying from blood red to white, passing by the pink “angel skin”.
Fashion point: in the 19th century, women wore their hair in twists on the top of their heads and in curls, hanging from each side of the face. They added a comb, flowers, leaves or jewelled ribbons to their hairstyle.
