Absolutely gorgeous Victorian garnet brooch or pin , an elegant starburst design . The lovely pointed oval garnets are set in a dark silver metal that is probably tarnished silver, but we rarely polish our antique jewelry unless is it plain sterling, so that choice will be left to the purchaser. All of the garnet are present and all of them are original. This brooch measures 1 & 3/8" across and the stones are dark and brilliant. The photos are terrible; for some reason our camera and this pin just do not get along, so you will receive a pin twice as pretty as you see, with dark rich red garnets.
