Adornments like this one were in fashion and quite common among the ladies of high society and well-off young girls of the XVIII century. This is the period when Rococo style ruled the roost both in Europe and in Russia. The precious bouquet in the collection of the Diamond Fund is not the single of the kind but it is a really unique one.
