A luscious cabochon garnet takes center stage on this gorgeous antique pendant brooch. Set with a chunky old mine cut diamond star, the entire thing is beautifully framed in a circle of pearls with blue enamel accents. To the reverse is a portrait miniature of a fine gentleman.
This is a substantial jewel, measuring 1 9/16" in diameter by 1/2" deep. The star measures approx.* 12mm from point to point , the garnet measures approx.* 19.59mm in diameter, and the pearls measure approx.* 2.2mm in diameter. Weight is a generous 19.3 grams. In good antique condition, there is a fine line on the left side of the portrait miniature which appears to be a crack, and is visible in the photos. The large spring ring shown in the second image is a photo prop and not included with the pendant brooch.
Striking and versatile, this wonderful antique jewel is a marvel and will fit in beautifully with any collection of fine antique jewels!
*approximation and estimation are due to the fact that the stones are mounted and exact measurements cannot be taken.
