This incredibly beautiful Christmas rose is a masterpiece of art. There is a legend that this rose blooms in snowy mountains on Christmas Eve, and it is called the “snow rose” or the Rose of Christ. Christmas rose is a symbol of hope, love and faith in a miracle! This legend of the Christmas rose served as the inspiration for the creation of the eponymous collection “The Legend of the Christmas Rose”, produced in the 1960s.
Noteworthy, Giovanni is not the name of a company, but a trademark of a jewelry line, the main idea of ​​which was floral motifs produced by Longcraft.

Interestingly, if the marking “Giovanni” is clearly stamped – most likely, such decoration was produced in the 1960-1970s. But if the mark is blurred, it means that the date of the creation – the 1980s-90s.

Longcraft company founded in 1878 in Boston by Thomas Long still exists, but under a different name – Long’s Jewelry. The most famous jewelry of this brand are brooches and clips in the form of flowers and rosebuds. Traditionally, materials for Giovanni jewelry – gold and silver plating, enamel and crystals of various colors.
