Czech Marked Faceted Garnet Pin Brooch
This is a beautiful piece comprised of prong set faceted natural garnet gemstones. Dazzling purple/red garnets are in a rich, dark color. Gold plated finish setting. Brooch is signed Czech on a cartouche on the back. This gorgeous pin measures 2" long and almost 1" across. There is a safety catch. The story is that Czech jewelers and their families used this way to transport their gems out of the country with them during the war...Excellent vintage condition. Rich!
