This impressive antique Victorian brooch has been crafted in 15 ct yellow gold.

The antique gold brooch displays a collet set paste cabochon foil* in relief within an oval 15ct yellow gold frame.

The feature imitation amethyst is encircled by an applied rope twist decorated border.

The oval frame is ornamented with applied rope twist decorated semi-circular motifs incorporating applied trefoil designs in addition to applied spiral twist decoration encircling both the cabochon and the border around the brooch.

The antique gold brooch secures to the reverse with a hinged pin and hook fastening and benefits from the additional security of a fine link chain with a safety clip.

This 1880’s brooch is supplied with an independent diamond grading report card.

This impressive brooch has been independently tested using state of the art technology (Niton XL2 Analyzer) and verified as 15 ct gold.

NOTE*:

During the Victorian Era, non-precious pastes were a part of evening jewellery sets. They were also used in pieces intended to convey coded messages of romance, based on the colours of the pastes. Such crystals, which were made of high-lead-content glass and had a permanent foil backing, gave the illusion of almost any gemstone, including diamonds, rubies, sapphires, emeralds and amethysts.
