Very sweet antique Victorian 10K Gold Thistle Brooch with two beautiful flowers, one a pale yellow Citrine and the other a pale purple Amethyst stone. The gold work of the Thistle is nicely detailed and textured. The Antique Scottish Thistle Brooch design can be describe as a safety-pin design. It measures 1 3/16 inches long and 1/4 inches to the tip of the Jeweled Thistles. The Brooch was assayed to determine the carat at 10K and weighs approximately 1.1 grams. There are areas of aged patine and expected minute surface scratches to the gold. It's a lovely piece in very good condition. Shows well in the photos and just as pretty in person! The photographs were taken with and without a camera flash.
