Victorian Micro Mosaic Brooch and Button Set


This remarkable set is a Splendid example of the Micro Mosaics that were so popular in 19th century Italy. This trend was a result of wealthy Aristocrats touring Europe and looking for artistic souvenirs. Micro Mosaics, often featuring Italian landmarks, made the perfect purchase as they were small and easy to wear as they continued on their travels. These delicate mosaics are set in 14k yellow gold. The brooch and one of the buttons feature Roman columns and the other button depicts the Coliseum. The brooch has a locking c-clasp fastener. Dimensions: Brooch measures approx: 2.5cm tall x 2.1cm wide; Buttons are 1.6cm tall x 1.4cm wide. For your wearing pleasure, we’ll convert the buttons to earrings. Classic and Timeless, taking you from day to evening effortlessly!
