About

Crescent motifs were all the rage during the Victorian era and throughout the years we've had the privilege of buying and selling some extraordinary examples; however, this singular and sensational jewel is truly befitting of royalty! Measuring an impressive 2 inches wide and masterfully hand crafted in nineteenth century France in silver over 18K gold, this astonishingly gorgeous brooch is packed to the hilt with over 10 carats of bright-white, ultra-sparkling old mine-cut diamonds arrayed in a double crescent. Majestic and magnifique!
