This beautiful brooch can be worn anytime, anywhere, and will make the most luxurious of gifts. Crafted in 18K gold and signed by Black Starr & Frost (BS & F). It is a large brooch measuring 1-7/8" x over 1.25". It is a true masterpiece featuring elaborate cobalt blue and white enameling. There are 3 genuine opals, 9.7mm x 7mm oval and 2 rounds 6.5mm in diameter. Good looking opals, no crazing. The diamonds are pretty spectacular, they are very tall old mine cuts. The diamonds are .25ct (twice) and .10 carats (twice). In addition, there are 14 rose cut diamonds set on the bottom portion of the brooch. All diamonds are estimated to be VS-2 in clarity, HI in color. Incredible fire! Total diamond weight is estimated to be .84 carats. Secure clasp, I am thinking pin is a later addition. There is a small loop on the bottom, it was possibly a watch pin at some point. The weight is very hefty 16.3 grams (one Troy ounce = 31.1 grams).
Excellent condition with no enamel damage.
True Investment Grade Piece!
