Here's a prime example of sophistication that graced society at the turn of the last century. This brooch features 3 round cut, bead set diamonds (.30 carats total) and 4 table cut sapphires (.20 carats total). The filigree is magical.
The brooch shows no hallmarks and tests electronically to be 14K gold and platinum. During the Edwardian era, a decorative enhancement called “milgraining” was common. Milgraining involves a small border of platinum beads set around the edges of a piece of jewelry that adds a soft, elegant look. The clasp is the European locking style.
At 2 1/4 inches long and 2.4 pennyweights, this will make for a most elegant gift.
