A lovely example of antique celestial jewellery dating back to late Victorian- early Edwardian era, circa 1900! In Victorian times the crescent moon was often associated with female empowerment, whilst the stars often represented guidance, and the sword often symbolized protection & honor.
The beautifully crafted brooch is encrusted with 19 imitation seed pearls. Handle of sword is beautifully shaped in the medieval-style. Opposite end finishes with a single pearl set in box setting, pin from behind representing the sword's point. (design may have been altered at some point of it's life!) Three twinkling pink stars are embellished with ruby doublets and trace chain drapes below crescent and further style.
The brooch is not stamped, a acid-test indicates 9k yellow gold. Copper pin and 'C' connection are on the reverse.
A handsome sword brooch which oozes femininity... one for the distinct lady!
