The color of the turquoise jumps out of this stunning brooch. The stones are mounted in silver that is overlaid on 9K gold. The turquoise is beautifully matched and does not show any of the normal discoloring we see frequently in older stones. Adding to the delightful design are three small and one larger pearl.
The "T" pin and "C" clasp are original and in perfect working order. We did not see any identifying marks, but careful acid testing indicates the gold is 9K. The piece measures 1 ½ inches kin width and 1 3/8 inches top to bottom.
Lovely antique condition.
