Create your own family legend with this intriguing brooch! Dating from the 1850?s-1860?s, this Victorian Era piece is fashioned from high purity 18k yellow gold and features natural diamonds and a genuine sapphire solitaire. The brooch is shaped as a vintage-style lock in which a bar rod fits securely into a carved-out notch. In this case, the lock is outlined in natural diamonds and leads to a bezel-set sapphire adorning the end of the rod. The rose cut diamonds carry an impressive 1.00 carat total weight, SI1 - SI2 clarity, and G - H color, while the royal-blue sapphire carries .27 carat weight. Inset in borders of gleaming yellow gold, the diamonds and the sapphire are ported from the underside to allow light to flow freely through the stones for enhanced brilliance and sparkle. The brooch fastens from the back with a bar and fish-hook clasp that is in great working order. In pristine condition, this antique brooch is sure to become a conversation piece and will give you the chance to hint of deep, dark family secrets. The brooch?s 18k gold purity composition has been professionally tested and verified in our lab.
