Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

A luscious Victorian brooch that gets applause for beauty, rarity and quality work.. The elements of 1860-70 design abound.
The design is created in concentric circles. Central, and bordered by a fine twisted gold wire, is a red wine colored cabouchon garnet, smooth and domed. Spokes of fine gold and white enamel encircle the garnet, bringing to mind a bright summer sun . This segment is bordered by a twisted wire twice the width of the wire circling the stone. The finishing touch is hand painted black and white enamel with four recessed sections of graduated gold granulation, once again edged with gold wire. On the reverse, is a locket for a photo or memento. It presently holds a braided twist of salt and pepper hair. From the Glorious Antique Jewelry Collection
