A charming antique purple garnet brooch from the Victorian era, c1860! The brooch is made of 9ct yellow gold and features seven natural garnets, the stunning purple colour is typical of the special rhodolite type garnet.
Six elongated tear-cut garnets surround a round-cut garnet in a superb starburst design. Each garnet is set in individual claw down, open-back collet settings, allowing for light to filter through and reflect the stunning hue's these stones have to offer. The design is tastefully accented with little crescents in between the garnets and a 5.50mm thick circular tube adorned with beautiful hand engraved scroll foliage patterns. A metal pin and c-closure on the reverse makes up the rest of the brooch. There is also a little ring soldered to the reverse top allowing for the gold safety chain/pin attached, this could be removed and converted to a gorgeous pendant if you desire...

An eye-catching antique brooch, a feminine accessory for the collar or blouse.

The overall condition of the brooch is excellent. Besides normal surface wear and two tiny nicks to the stones the overall condition of the piece, including all stones is fantastic. All stones appear secure in their setting and the pin is great working order. A wonderful antique brooch!
