A beautiful antique green beryl and seed pearl brooch from the Art Nouveau period, c1908! This elegant brooch is made of 9ct gold and the colour is a lovely warm rose hue with a yellow hint. The stunning curvilinear design has a flowing appearance that is highly characteristic of the beautiful Art Nouveau aesthetic. Two green beryl gemstones dazzle from the centre of design - one rests centrally and the other suspends below. Both green beryls are claw set and display lovely ocean green shades with the lower beryl displaying a hint of blue. Two little seed pearls rest either side in collet-style settings. A copper pin and c-clasp connects to the back - the pin has firm tension.
The piece bears a set of English hallmarks to the reverse -'9' '375' 'Anchor' (Birmingham) "i" (year 1908), also makers marks which are difficult to decipher, albeit possibly ending with 'A&S'.
An elegant antique brooch sure to receive compliments. A graceful touch on the collar!
