This is an outstanding piece comprised of a sterling circular brooch bezel set with a gorgeous huge faceted citrine stone in the center.... in a bead work frame embellished with three pear or tear shaped faceted citrine droplets. The entire outline of the brooch is finished in a fine twisted rope edging. Solid, substantial, and very high quality and hefty piece.

Brooch measures 3 inches long by 1-3/4 inches wide.
Center citrine stone measures 7/8 inch in diameter by a minimum of 1/2 inch deep or equivalent to approximately 22 millimeters in size. Approximately 40 carat in size conservatively!
