The brooch is large and dramatic, 3-1/2" (east to west) (maximum dimensions) X 2" (north to south) (maximum dimensions). The brooch has a tube clasp. The piece weighs 36 grams. This piece would work nicely on a purse or hat.

Gold or silver plating is a method of depositing a thin layer of gold or silver onto the surface of another metal, most often copper or silver, to make gold or silver gilt. It is done by chemical or electrochemical plating. Gold-filled jewelry is composed of a solid layer of gold, constituting at least 5% of the item's total weight, that is mechanically bonded to a base of either sterling silver or some base metal. The related terms "rolled gold plate" and "gold overlay" may legally be used if the layer of gold constitutes less than 5% of the item's weight.

The plating is nicely done and shows no wear.
