The blossom has opaque enamel in opalescent white and pink. Mine-cut diamonds highlight the flower. The larger ones are riveted to the metal and the smaller stones are set in silver mounts in leaf-like settings. Below the orchid is a gold branch-like form with five pearls. It is unmarked but done in the style of the Newark makers.
