Antique Victorian Paste Cabochon Foil and 15K Yellow Gold Brooch

$1,070.81

About

A fine and impressive antique Victorian paste and 15 karat yellow gold brooch; part of our antique jewelry and estate jewelry collections This impressive antique Victorian brooch has been crafted in 15k yellow gold. The antique gold brooch displays a bezel set paste cabochon foil* in relief within an oval 15k 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 15k 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 colors 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. Condition This brooch is fine quality, set with an amethyst imitation antique paste cabochon. The brooch is a good gauge of gold and is in excellent condition, with sharp applied decoration. Dimensions Length of setting 4cm / 1.57" Width across setting 3.5cm / 1.37" Height of setting 1.5mm / 0.59" Date: Circa 1880 Video: A video of this fine piece is available upon request Reflections in photographs may detract from the true representation of this fine example of antique jewelry/estate jewelry. item Ref.
