For example, on the table of great Russian poet Alexander Pushkin stood a statue of black African as a reminder of his glorious ancestors … And to this day, such decorations remain incredibly popular. Despite globalization, they have not lost a veil of mystery and exoticism. This rare brooch depicts the black prince in a luxurious dress. Brushed metal colored Russian gold decorated with colored crystals and pearls in his ears, we see Prince earrings with red crystals. Exotic headdress completes his outfit.
Opened in 1979 in the suburbs of London under the direction of Ms. Susan Askew, it became a small family enterprise for the production of jewelry (mainly necklaces). Traditionally, Askew jewelers made all products by hand, and the main materials were brass and alloys containing copper. Further decorations covered with gold (24 carats) or silver-plated. For cabochons used mainly old semi-precious stones, as well as Japanese art glass of the highest quality.
