Victorian 1.65 Carat Total Weight Garnet Brooch Silver and Yellow Gold

$1,175

About

This brooch is a good example of how the victorians used silver on top of gold to prevent silver tarnish from staining the skin or clothes and to still have the desired look of a white metal. This method was used before white gold was invented or when platinum was very hard to come by due to expense or non-existent in jewellery. The top of the brooch is silver with the back of the piece being made from 14 karat yellow gold. There are forty-nine garnets in the brooch, that weigh a total of: 1.65 carat total weight. There is also a little loop on the back of the brooch - we believe a bale could be added, giving you the option to wear as a pendant. It's a beautiful piece that we find ourselves admiring whenever it crosses our paths. 49 old mine cut garnets: 1.65 carat total weight silver backed 14 karat yellow gold This item comes with a verification report from a certified independent appraiser.
