"en tremblant"

The craftsmanship displayed in this jewel represents the highest level of perfection: in the harmony of the proportions, the meticulously precise metalwork, the vibrant colors of the precious gems, and the overall balanced look of the brooch. Each of the flowers is set "en tremblant", a French term – meaning "to tremble" – given to 18th and 19th century jewelry where parts of the jewel were attached to a spring-like metal wire to create a dynamics in the jewel.
