This piece is just an outstanding example of Victorian jewelry with 14k gold fittings (tested) that has a definite rosy glow. The onyx brooch is in very good condition and is set with a pearl flower on each end. In the center is wonderful stone cameo framed in pearls. The woman depicted in the cameo is just beautiful with wonderful detail down to her earrings and necklace.
The brooch measures approximately 2 7/8 inches long by ¾ inches at the widest. The cameo surrounded by pearls measures approximately ¾ inches by 5/8 inch. On the back there is a hook for either a tassel or watch or whatever you may wish to include or nothing at all. This brooch would make a wonderful addition to your antique jewelry collection. Please feel free to contact me with any questions.
