The orange blossom is a hopeful and celebratory flower with bright white color and a delicate scent, and is often used in perfumes and bouquets and is quite popular to integrate into weddings. Its bloom is a promise of bountiful fruit which symbolizes prosperity, and its color denotes innocence.
The orange blossom was catapulted into prominence when Queen Victoria adorned her floral wedding crown with the five-petaled citrus bud, acknowledging her marriage to Albert would be fruitful for Britain, and it was. But this little blossom was not lost or forgotten. Instead, it transformed into an attractive floral motif engraved into Art Deco jewelry.
Circa 1925, this beautiful example features a millgrain edge and superb single cut diamonds set as the shining faces of orange blossoms.
