Stunning Victorian silver and carnelian brooch and pendant

Out of stock

Description

Another fabulous item from our collection of antique, Victorian jewellery with this trefoil brooch. It was not uncommon for the Victorians to have objects for every eventuality; sometimes even one object for more than one eventuality and in this case the brooch is also pendant. it is converted by a ring and bail on the top side which is easy enough to slide a chain through.

The piece is made in silver (unmarked due to the low silver content) and a rich amber carnelian with gorgeous striations giving a translucent quality. The stone is fixed in place with delicate little “claws” and a central open ring while to the rear a C-clasp to secure a vertical pin. Because the C-clasp is open, we often advise the addition of a safety chain to avoid loss. This is a superb and very stylish brooch with a definite character which will suit any occasion.

Condition

This brooch is ostensibly in excellent condition for its age. On the outward face it appears pristine while on the reverse a few scuff marks where the stone was cut or the pin has scraped the stone. All silver in lovely condition and instantly wearable.

  • Approx 2 x 2 x 2 inches (5 x 5 x 5 cm) – described thus as a trefoil
