This is a handsome antique Georgian period cut crystal paste brooch in 10K yellow gold setting.The brooch features a ring of 8 faceted stones around a a single larger stone. The stones vary in that some have a frosted appearance and others are clearer. The cut of the stones and degree of age wear is consistent so I don't think any of the stones are replacements. The setting is unmarked but the metal tests positive for gold content of at least 10K. The brooch has a typical old fashioned T hinged pin stem and simple C clasp.
This brooch measures 1.375" x 1.375". It weighs 12.5 gr.
Condition: There is some surface wear to the stones and some dings in the setting on the back.
This is an excellent classic Georgian paste brooch to add to your collection.
