This brooch has been independently tested using state of the art technology (Niton XL2 Analyzer) and verified as 18k white gold. PLEASE NOTE: The Old European cut diamonds and gemstones displayed in this brooch are circa 1900. It was common practice in the 1940's to amalgamate older diamonds and gemstones in such pieces. Images do not always reflect the true colour and brilliance of gemstones and diamonds. The video however provides a truer representation of the actual colour and showcases each stone. Condition This impressive brooch is fine quality, set with an impressive ruby and sapphire displaying fine color and brilliance. The opal displays a scintillating play of color and brilliance. The very high color graded diamonds display a fine white color and brilliance. The brooch is an excellent gauge of gold and is in excellent condition.
