Georgian Old Cut Diamond Heart Shape Brooch Circa 1820

About the Item

An antique old cut diamond heart brooch, circa 1820. The Georgian brooch is designed as an open heart shape, set with twenty-two old European cut diamonds all mounted in silver and gold with a single pin fitting to the reverse. Period Georgian circa 1820 Origin English Gemstones 22 x Old mine cut diamonds estimated 7.50cts Setting Silver and gold Weight 13.4 grams Dimensions Length: 3.4cm/1.3" Width (at widest point): 3.4cm/1.3" Condition Very good Directors Notes Tokens of love and sentiment feature prominently in jewellery dating back to the medieval period, but it was during the 19th century that the heart motif became highly prominent. The Victorian’s were hugely fond of heart shaped jewels, no doubt influenced by Queen Victoria’s fondness for the shape. One of her most precious and personal pieces was a charm bracelet with nine differently coloured enamel hearts on it, each representing one of her children. The heart motif remains incredibly popular and has, over the years been reimagined and interpreted by many a jewellery designer in so many styles and forms, a truly enduring and timeless jewelled symbol.
