A sweet little ruby and seed pearl brooch from the Edwardian era, c1910! Made of 9ct yellow gold, the dainty brooch features two natural rubies and eight little seed pearls. The rubies are claw set at the end of tapered and curved lines which are overlapped centrally, almost in a 3-dimensional design. Little seed pearls accent down the lines, graduating in size. The curved lines rest on a gleaming knife edge bar adorned with beadwork and fleur de lis like profiles at the ends - a lovely finishing touch! On the back of the piece is a secure pin clasp, as well as a safety chain/pin, for extra security. Sighted on the back is a stamp "S BROS" which is possibly either Sydenham Brothers or the Sheldon Brothers. Both were making jewelry in Birmingham, England in the early 20th century. No carat hallmarks are sighted to the brooch, however tests as 9ct gold.

An elegant and dainty antique brooch. A gorgeous little accessory on the lapel!

Edwardian, c1910
9ct gold (tested)
Two natural earth-mined RUBIES, | Cut: faceted round | Color: pinkish red | Clarity: natural inclusions seen under magnification indicative of earth mined rubies | Size: 3.25mm | Weight: estimated combined weight - 0.30 carats. Eight white SEED PEARLS - possibly natural indicative of the age *Gemstones tested by a FGAA gemmologist with professional gemmological equipment.
"S BROS"
2.36 grams
1.1/2" inches (4cm) length
The brooch remains in good antique condition. The gold surface is in excellent shape with no dents or marks. There is a small repair to the back of the brooch which can be seen under magnification. One of the ruby settings has claws missing and appears to have been glued for security. Unfortunately a solder claw repair would risk losing the pearls due to the close proximity of the pearls, so have left as is and priced accordingly. The rubies have small nicks consistent with the age but does not detract from the overall look of the piece in any way. Both pins have good tension and fasten securely. A wonderful antique brooch!
