A gorgeous, mid-century retro brooch from the time when glamour and romance ruled the world of fashion. A stunning, medium-light blue aquamarine, weighing in at an estimated 11.7ct, is the center attraction, set in a dramatic, floral-design sweep of 18kt gold. You can picture this fabulous brooch on a Hollywood movie star! The aquamarine is beautifully-faceted, indicating fine workmanship, reflecting its light blue color brilliantly in every direction. The cool blue aquamarine, while possessing a light saturation, is color-saturated enough to avoid the pale, washed-out look of some aquamarines. This gorgeous stone has a subtle but distinct medium blue tone, and in lower light, it becomes even more vivid. Providing the perfect backdrop is solid, 18kt gold, with a textured finish to the leaves and floral element. In a word, stunning, a brooch that will sparkle on that special outfit.
Total weight of this beautiful brooch is 15.5 grams, or more than 3/4 oz of 18kt gold. It measures approximately 2-1/2" x 1". The aquamarine is modified oval-cut, with brilliant faceting. It measures approximately 19 x 12 x 9 mm, with an estimated weight of 11.7ct. (Weights and measurements estimated as permitted by mounting). The pin-stem fastens with a trombone-style clasp with safety catch. The 18kt gold is acid-tested, and also stamped "18K". It is in excellent vintage condition.
This mid-century treasure will arrive in a fine quality presentation box.
