About

A set of three English Antique silver top/15 kt gold brooches with diamonds. The 3 star brooches are composed of 92 old mine-cut diamonds with rose diamond accents. The approximate total weight of the three brooches is 6.30 carats. Circa 1880's.

Stars were the most popular jewelry motif during the Grand Victorian Era of the 1860’s to the 1880’s. They were carved into the tops of amethysts and carbuncles, centered on brooches, bracelets and lockets, and pavèd with pearls, turquoise, opals and diamonds. These early stars were relatively flat, later in the century a more dimensional form of the motif would emerge, as this set shows.

Dimensions: 1 1/4" diameter, 1" diameter
