Ring Brooch

British or French

On view at The Met Fifth Avenue in Gallery 304

Brooches such as this were among the objects most frequently produced by goldsmiths. Simple and repetitive in design, the quality of these forms of adornment could vary widely. This is an example of a more finely wrought gold brooch. In addition to its comparatively lively, vegetal design, it is also embellished with semiprecious stones rather than glass paste.
