Wonderful Antique Victorian 14K yellow gold (acid tested) brooch. This beautiful brooch measures 1 3/4" long X 2" wide. In a shield shape motif, the brooch has a lovely hand chased, hand assembled design with black enameling, and three faceted garnets which are mounted on the top of the bale. Hanging from the brooch is a dangling 1.00MM orb which has nine cabochon cut rhodolite garnets. Weight is 7 dwt. In excellent antique condition, with a tiny bit of age appropriate enamel loss, and a few tiny dings to a couple of the amethyst. I'll let the pictures tell the rest of the story.
