This is a Bernard Instone very large and heavy brooch. The brooch is set with multicoloured stones, and typical Bernard Instone silver leave work. The large hexagon shape faceted citrine is in a silver bezel surround, it is the base of a plant pot. There are silver leaves in the middle of the brooch which then branch off into stems of different coloured stones which are I think synethic. There are varying sizes and shapes, oval, square, teardrop, round, all the stones are set in prong settings. The back is typical Instone, the one problem with the brooch is there is a tiny hole in the middle at the bottom of the silver leaves, I was wondering if anybody would have any idea of what might have been here. I have never seen anything quite like this of Bernard Instone. Before I forget at the bottom of the citrine hexagon is a silver stand.
Many thanks for looking.
