To this day, the iconic "Snowball Blossoms" are among the most outstanding artistic masterpieces of the Meissen porcelain manufactory. Created in 1739 at the behest of King Augustus III as a gift to his wife Maria Josepha, the porcelain blossoms have been reinterpreted nearly three centuries later as jewellery. Both then and now, MEISSEN, with its jewellery collections, continues to set the standard for combining porcelain with precious metals. In the "1739 Royal Blossom" collection, the delicate flowers are set in 750 yellow gold. Each "Snowball Blossom" is made by hand and features a white diamond pistil set in yellow gold.
