  • Description
  • Item Details

A stylish antique brooch, once worn in the late 1800's to early 1900's circa on the ladies high neck collar. This lovely brooch is made from a soft antique 9ct rose gold colour. The brooch features one oval cabochon solid white opal with one natural rhodalite garnet to one side and one garnet topped doublet (composite) to the other side. Stones are bead set in an attractive 'star' design. The side garnets  vary in shades slightly- the Rhodalite Garnet is a purple shade and the Garnet Topped Doublet is a pinkish shade. We are surmising that the rhodalite garnet was replaced at one stage along the years. T-bar pin and C -clasp on the reverse in great working order.  There is a loop attached if you wish to wear with a safety chain (not included).

Interesting fact

Garnet Topped Doublet

The garnet topped doublet was popular in the 18th and 19th century and used in Victorian and Edwardian jewellery.  It was to imitate ruby, sapphire, emerald and other colored gemstones. The top, (crown) was garnet, the bottom (pavilion) was green, blue, or red glass, an optical illusion, only the color of the bottom layer shows- the garnet provides no colour.
