Margot de Taxco’s design no 5194, her “roses” parure, is one of her most romantic, “feminine” creations. There is something so tactile about the small silver flowers linking together to make up necklaces, bracelets and brooches that brings a certain kind of “first love” warmth to your heart and put a smile on your face. Quite often combined with hearts and cupids, the “roses” are the quintessentially “lovers’ jewelry” motif. The design’s appeal seems to have lasted for a long time since most of the parure’s components show up often enough – except for the ring, which follows the rule about Margot rings: there just aren’t enough around. Yet here it is – discretely sweet, beautifully made, gracefully aged. Is it time to … smell the roses?
