Foiling is a gemstone surface enhancement technique where a thin sheet of metal or other material (sometimes colored) is placed behind the gemstone in order to reflect more light, and/or color, back into the stone and then towards the viewer. Therefore, the foil acts both as a reflector and a coloring agent. Most foiled gemstones are set in closed backs to shield protect the foil from deterioration. 

The vividity of this brooch is impossible to ignore. This piece features two pansies, one in the foiled gemstones, and the other in tiny yet mighty pearls. 

Most often, pansies are used to symbolize loving feelings. You can give a pansy flower to just about anyone whom you hold dear to your heart. The ideal gift for a mother, partner, or friend, it's best used as a symbol of platonic love.
