Your choice ? What to put in this fine gold framed brooch? Whatever you pick would be enhanced by the gold oak leaves, tiny rubies, paste "diamonds" and a few seed pearls. The fabric is easily removed or could be used as a fine backdrop for a photograph or other treasure you wish to display.
The gold frame has been tested and is guaranteed to be 14K gold. The brooch measures 2 1/2 inches in length and 2 inches in width. It weighs 18.5 grams. The glass front is secure in the frame and is easily removed without damage. The reverse shows evidence of solder in several areas used to secure the designs to the frame. No doubt this was done with care so that it has no effect on the beauty of the piece. The "T"pin and "C" clasp are original and work well. A tiny hook on the back may have held a drop of some sort, bit has been long since gone. We consider the possibility of adding a bale and creating a large pendant rather than just a brooch.
Either way it lends itself to your creativity!!
