|The Russian Rose Brooch|
The brooch is made of 1466 diamonds of exceptional pure colour and clarity, all of Russian origin. They are set in platinum frame, which only enhances their sparkle.
I suppose it is cheating to include this second rose and there is only one justification: I absolutely it. Both of them, in fact.
