I am pleased to offer this stunning Victorian brooch. It is a large elongated oval shape with smooth black onyx set in a rope framework. Embedded within the onyx is an eight point star setting embellished with seed pearls. Marked 14k gold on the clasp. There is a chain with a little fitting for attaching to your clothing. Condition is superb. A very heavy and substantial piece of jewelry. Excellent quality. Circa 1860-1870.
