These loops are from the Botanical Line. The study of plants, one of the oldest human activities, became the science of botany under Ancient Greece. It does not stop evolving over the centuries, and knows some revolutions according to the periods of the History and the various technological advances: the invention of paper for example, makes it possible to create herbariums. During the Renaissance, this science underwent major developments: botanical collections were to be expressed in cabinets of curiosities. Botanical plates will particularly develop with the discovery of printing, then explorations and the discovery of exotic plant species encourage the creation of imposing orangeries. Later, the mastery of steel and glass will allow the creation of sparkling tropical greenhouses...
This is all that the Botanical Line transcribes. If you are curious to know more about the atmosphere & the history of this line, it is here !
The structure of this jewel evokes that of a botanical greenhouse. These were particularly developed in the 19th century.e century with the industrial revolution; this is why the design of this jewel is also close to the industrial style.
These loops represent a round central element suspended from 2 decorative elements, themselves suspended from a chip with a floral pattern. All these elements are connected to each other with small rivets; thus the whole is fully articulated, giving movement to the wearer and reinforcing the "indus" side.
These earrings are asymmetrical, the floral motifs represented on them are not the same; on one figure a mandrake flower, and on the other the fruit. These drawings are represented in the manner of a botanical plate: just below is engraved the Latin name of the plant: "Atropa belladonna". Belladonna is a plant with medicinal properties, or toxic, depending on the dosage... Ladies used it during the Renaissance to dilate their pupils and make their eyes shine, thus making themselves more attractive; hence the name of the plant, "bella donna" (beautiful lady) in Italian!
Belladonna belongs to the Solanaceae family, hence the name of this jewel. This family includes very common edible species such as the potato, tomato, eggplant... and species with medicinal or toxic virtues, such as the mandrake, tobacco...
