COMMENTS: This large brooch dating to the romantic early Victorian era, 1830-50's is hand crafted of 9k gold with a beautiful ornate frame displaying a polished Chalcedony with applied forget-me-not floral detail accented with Turquoise. In the Victorian era this sentimental forget-me-not flower was used to symbolize constant attachment and affection and a wish that love would not die. It shows some minor wear indicative of age - The clasp has been replaced with a locking roll-over clasp and the folding bale was removed. We can add a bale if you desire. Pictured with the original undisturbed aged patina.
