Very pretty antique Victorian 14K Gold Peridot Brooch, dating to circa: 1880. A great design which suggests the morning sunrise with a sparkly green Peridot standing in for the Sun. The Peridot is gorgeous---the stone is a transparent lime green color (more vivid in person) that sparkles brilliantly. The Peridot is prong mounted in a beautifully made ornate mounting with an unusual and original C-clasp. The graceful and elegant Brooch (Peridot Bar Pin) measures 1 3/4" long. The Peridot is approximately 8 points. The Brooch was assayed to determine the carat at 14K. The gold is a warm yellow gold. The Brooch weighs approximately 3 pennyweights (4.7 grams) and is in very fine condition. The antique Peridot Brooch is much prettier in person than the photos show. The Brooch was photographed with and without a camera flash. Truly lovely Peridot Pin!
