Here we have a beautiful Victorian 18ct gold, natural pearl brooch in a crescent half moon design. This is a stunning brooch with heavy carved gold and 27prong set seed pearls. The brooch is hallmarked 18ct, and has the original “C” clasp, and stainless pin. Stainless pins were common on 18ct pieces, because the gold is more pure and therefore softer. The brooch measures 26mm in length. It appears to have had an attachment on the inside of the moon at one time, probably a star, which has been removed. This does not detract from the exquisiteness of this piece in the least. The edging detail on this piece is fabulous.
