This jewelry design is reminiscent of the scroll motif popular in 18th-century decorative arts. The scroll is classic in origin, dating to the days of ancient Greece. Artisans of the 18th century often combined classical and natural elements, rendering the curving scroll shape in the form of gracefully flowing leaves and vines. Precious and semiprecious stones - diamonds, rubies, emeralds, topaz, and garnet - were as highly prized in the colonial period as they are today, as were gold and silver.
