This magnificent and stunning, large antique diamond brooch has been crafted in 9 ct yellow gold with silver settings.

The feature eight-leaf flower is ornamented with a central 1.75 ct Old European cut diamond, claw / prong set within a star design embellished with ten smaller old European cut diamonds.

Four of the eight petals are pave set with a total of thirty-two Old European cut diamonds.

Each of the remaining four petals, positioned alternately, are ornamented with a significant cushion cut diamond and a smaller old European cut diamond at the tip.

Placed between each petal are stylised stamen-like designs individually accented with a single diamond to the anther.

The sweeping leaves, buds and stems are embellished with a total of one hundred and thirty-five pavé set old European cut diamonds, graduating in size dependent on position in the design.

This very large and stunning antique Victorian brooch secures to the reverse with a hinged pin and push fit security catch.

This magnificent antique Victorian brooch is supplied with five independent diamond grading certificates for the largest diamonds, in addition to the independent diamond grading report card illustrated.

This exceptional silver set brooch has no hallmarks, as to be expected with this type of antique Victorian jewelry, which has been independently tested using state of the art technology (Niton XL2 Analyzer) and verified as 9 k gold.

The brooch is fitted to a red leatherette, hinged presentation case.

The case has a velvet and satin lined interior which displays the retailer's name 'Fattorini & Sons Ltd. Diamond Merchants, Bradford'
