Absolutely stunning and most spectacular late 19th Century Jeweled Crescent / Jeweled Circle Brooch. Is exceptionally fine; is of Platinum and Gold, with prong mounted Old Mine Diamonds and one Ruby. Is one of the prettiest and most unusual of this type we have seen. The design of the Brooch is a tapered Crescent....with a gorgeous faceted pinkish-red Ruby set between the two pointed ends, forming a Circle. The Crescent is studded with very sparkly and wonderful Old Mine Diamonds. The Diamonds have an approximate total weight of one carat. The Ruby is absolutely stunning in color and vibrancy.
It is a substantial size, weighing approximately 25 points. The mounting is of Platinum and Yellow Gold. Measures 1" in diameter. A safety clasp on the reverse was added at a later date. Is a phenomenal piece of workmanship and design and of the highest quality.
Is in very beautiful, very fine condition and shows very well in the photographs and of course, even prettier in person. The photos were taken with and without a camera flash. Is just a most lovely and fine antique Platinum, Gold, Diamond and Ruby Brooch.
