Unusual wire work and threaded pearls define the high dome of this unusual antique brooch. It features four pear shaped garnets of deep red color that are surrounded by tiny seed pears threaded in a round cluster shape. Together they create the high dome shape of the brooch. Enhancing the pearls and garnets there is an exceptional Etruscan Revival wire work as the outer border. The gold has been tested and is guaranteed to be 14K gold.

We believe the "T" pin to be original, but the "C" clasp looks to be a replacement. The pin extends to one side of the brooch which is typical of the period. The brooch measures 1 3/8 inch by 1 /18 inch and its depth is 5/8 inch. I weighs 7 grams.

It is an intricate and lovely example of Victorian jewelry in fine antique condition. It is also possible for a jeweler to add two small jump rings on the reverse so that the piece might be worn on a chain as a pendant
