This is a beautiful and most extraordinary brooch that dates to the 1860-1880 period. It has such a unique diamond shape which has been accentuated with the handcrafted gold embellishments.
The quartz is semi-translucent because of the many natural floating inclusions within the stone. The top part of the stone is encased around a diamond shaped bezel setting while the bottom half of the stone has very elaborate and beautiful scalloped edging.
You can wear this brooch in any direction. Just imagine all the outfits you can wear this with.
Brooch measures 1 1/4 inches across. The original pin was replaced with this white metal one. The pin also shows solder marks from previous repairs. The 9kt etching can be found in the back at the tip. The surface of the stone does have fine scratches and marks from age and wear. Quartz measures 34 x 20mm. Weighs 8.50 grams.
