The GOLDEN Flower power by Cartier and Tiffany

The flower generation was not only about the hippy movement! These two brooches, the one above by Cartier and found at Hancock's, London, and the one below by Tiffany & Co found at Schrubsole, New York, are great examples of how fine jewellery can adapt even to the least likely fashion.

Both were manufactured in the early 1960's and both are extremely delicate and beautiful. They would make an outfit even today, some fifty years later!. One just need to picture Nicole Kidman wearing a black tuxedo or Angelina Jolie in a cream dress with just the flower.
