We’re having quite the budding romance with floral-motif jewels this spring. The fine jewelry houses are delivering some stellar interpretations of nature through the fabrication of so-real-you-can-smell them orchid brooches and garden-worthy collars, bedecked in jewels and gemstones that almost perfectly mimic their natural colors. Might we suggest indulging in one jewel for each kind of bud; before you know it you’ll have your own garden—no green thumb needed, just emeralds.
