A beautiful antique pin from the Victorian period.
The gilt sterling pin has four tiers of fiery red round bohemian garnets and two tiers of pear shaped garnets.
All the stones are rose cut and set in serrated edge bezels.
The height of the rose cut increases the depth of color.
The pear shaped stones on the bottom row give the pin a flower shape, a second row of pear shaped stones surrounds the center (top) garnet.
There is negative space between each tier that is not obvious from the photos.
The layered construction gives the pin height, the center garnet has the highest cut.
Very well made and in excellent condition, all original, no damage or wear.
It has a a hinged pin stem, the C clasp was replaced with a safety catch long ago.
The diameter is 1&3/8" and a depth of .5".
A stunning example of an antique garnet pin.
