This is a Bohemian Garnet Brooch from the beginning of the last Century. It is 1 5/8" in diameter and weighs a solid 8.4 grams. It has a 'T' bar and 'C' clasp as was the fashion. It is studded with Rose Cut Garnets that shine and sparkle in the Sun light. It is in excellent estate condition and has recently been gone over by my bench jeweler.
From a local Litchfield, CT estate.
