Exquisite leaf jewellery

Exquisite loved leaf jewellery. 

In their long history, they produced so many different versions of their jewellery leaves in large and small leaf brooches and earrings. This jewellery blog has some original information leaflets. We are also photographing and showing all the leaf jewellery for your pleasure and ongoing research.

The Exquisite company produced leaves in Vine, Beech, Horse Chestnut, Elm, Ivy, Cherry, Hazel, Pine, Mour ‘N Ash, Oak, Mulberry and also Sycamore. They used a variety of finishes from hand painted enamel, gold, silver in a plain tone or textured and many different designs.

The above is a cherry tree leaf brooch by Exquisite in an all textured gold tone. This design can be found in a variety of finished and colours making it ideal to collect. It is also in a large and small size and matching earring clips can be found still.

Sycamore jewellery or also know as a leaf from the helicopter tree. Throw the seeds in the air and watch them twirl down to the ground. This Sycamore leaf brooch is hand enamelled. So you will find different color tones and looks. Again in a large and small size with matching earrings to be found.

The large leaf is we think from an Elm tree sprig below with the colourful distinct seeds – but we have been wrong before.
Enamel Mulberry brooch by Exquisite
This is a Mulberry leaf although the fruit is like a blackberry - it is part of the Birthday range.
Cream enamel leaf brooch by Exquisite
 It is an unusual brooch in a cream enamel with raised gold textured edging.
The horse chestnut brooch or conker as more known. Beautifully enamelled by hand is the one in the above photographs. Again found in all sort of finishes.
Or jewellery blogs are ongoing and we add more as we have sourced and photographed it.

I preserve the past. Researching family and local history. Finding about mine and other people's ancestors, is just one of my passions. I also love vintage costume jewellery made here in the UK. I write about my finds and like to research.
