A lovely Victorian Sweetheart Brooch in a Heart shape, set with polished Onyx in 9kt Gold. 9kt has been a legal Gold Standard in the United Kingdom since 1854, so the Brooch would date from sometime after that. Measuring 7/8 inch wide and 1 1/8 inch down, the Brooch fastens with an extended tube hinged pin and 'C' clasp, and is marked on the reverse '9CT' (Ct stands for Carat - the UK spelling for Karat). The Gold frame around the Onyx is textured on the front, and has a matt finish on the reverse of the Brooch. In superb condition with no damage to the Onyx, a lovely example of a Brooch expressing the sentiment of love.
