This beautiful antique Victorian Etruscan revival brooch is 18 K yellow gold featuring a large Malachite Cabochon stone. The gold frame is beautifully adorned with delicate cannetille filigree details. This antique piece is extremely large and hefty weighing 24 grams and measuring 1.75 x 2 inches. The tiered construction even makes it approximately 1/2 inch thick. The beautiful marble like emerald green malachite stone is in excellent condition and beautifully highlighted by the intense yellow gold. Although the clasp on the back reads one 4K the gold setting tests as 18 karat gold. The beautiful stone is not loose from the setting or chipped in anyway. I have not polished this piece at all and it is in excellent condition especially for that era. There is no bail to wear it as a necklace, but a good jeweler could add one should you wish.
