Antique Victorian 9K Yellow Gold & Silver Diamond and Pearl Salamander Brooch

About the Item

A Victorian diamond, pearl, silver, and yellow gold brooch, comprising fifteen rose cut diamonds, and two pearls, set in silver, with 9 karat yellow gold brooch pin and fittings. The brooch is formed as a salamander. It is very uncommon to see a salamander depicted with a branch in its mouth. Salamanders have long been symbols of transformation, renewal, and were believed to be impervious to fire. The salamander is formed in silver, accentuating the glitter of the rose cut diamonds which adorn its body. The salamander is detailed, with a lifelike appearance, and holds a sprig in its mouth, as if it is about to scamper away with its prize. The sprig is formed of a leaf, adorned with sparkling diamonds, and two offshoots which are each set with a rose cut diamond, and a lustrous pearl. The pearls are pale, with good lustre, and are well matched with one another. The brooch is fitted with a safety catch, and the brooch pin and fittings are in a rosy toned yellow gold. The brooch is in great condition. Wear and tear acquiescent with age. The brooch measures 12mm high, and 50mm wide. The brooch measures 5.5mm deep, excluding pin and fittings. Total diamond spread, estimated: 0.6ctw Pearl sizes, each, estimated: 5mm x 4.3mm Gross weight: 4.62g Hallmarks: none, tests as 9 karat gold and silver, circa 1870
