Victorian Diamond Amethyst Ruby Enamel Gold Silver Brooch Pendant Victorian 1870s suffrage poly chrome enamel amethyst diamond and ruby brooch pendant mounted in gold and silver. Very engaging to the eye, this magnificent example of Victorian jewelry making ingenuity is replete with the artful arrangement of elements extracted from the earth and rendered into wearable art by man's creativity. Enamel colors frequently associated with the suffrage movement: green , purple and white are made resplendent by contrasting amethyst and rubies highlighted by approximately 1.50 carats of rose-cut diamonds. There is a lot to see here. How pretty is all that hand-chased work on the exposed gold? Intense, like the social mood of the period when it was made! Mounted in 15-karat gold and silver, the jewel is meant to be worn as a brooch or as a pendant, shown here suspended from a modern 14-karat gold snake chain. Make someone happy! Make yourself happy too!! DIMENSIONS: 2" vertical width and 1 9/16" horizontal width overall.
