Victorian 15 Karat Gold Pearl Dual Sweet Heart, Ruby Key and Diamond Bow Brooch



A beautiful Victorian 15 karat yellow gold sentimental brooch. It comprises a pearl double sweet heart, ruby set key and a diamond set bow. A brooch truly loaded with symbolism, this fine and impressive antique sweet heart brooch boasts two split pearl encrusted lovers hearts entwined and forever sealed by a delicately crafted key all set in buttery 15 karat yellow gold throughout. The key is adorned with two claw set rubies, pink a common colour symbolic of love and passion, during the Victorian period and also throughout history. The design is finished off with a diamond set bow surmounted atop the lovers hearts for that final flurry of unity and sentimentality.
