A gold plated brooch in the shape of a flower, made with sapphire coloured cabochons.

This brooch is inspired by a necklace in the British Museum’s collection.

The original necklace was found in India during the restoration of the MahābodhI temple in 1880-81.It consists of coin impressions made into a pendant, gold flowers, some with a central sapphire, imitation conches, and patterned discs and buttons.

The coin impressions are taken from an issue of Huviṣka (2nd century AD), and the silver punch-marked coins also found are older but could still have been current in Kuṣāṇa times.
