A beautiful antique brooch dating back to the late Edwardian era, circa 1915! The brooch is made of 9k gold and features a stunning peach-colour paste - a bright stone and at a quick glance one may think 'imperial topaz', albeit gemmological tests indicate otherwise! There are little imitation seed pearls which adorn the surrounding border, placed into small alternate leaf and circular profiles. The paste rests centrally into a scalloped multi-claw setting. A pin and 'C' connection is on the the reverse, as well as a safety chain/pin connection for extra security. The piece could easily be converted into a pendant - a jump ring could be added to the top (removing the safety chain beforehand), allowing a chain to slide through the jump ring. Style to suit your desired look with this one!

The reverse of brooch bears early Australian stamps. The stamps are that of the early Australian quality guarantee - a '9' and 'Sheaf' stamp denoting 9ct gold, and a 'pyramid' stamp denoting early Australian jeweller Edwards & Dumbrell of Melbourne, Victoria.

A stunning antique piece which would look beautiful worn as a brooch or pendant. Something unique!
