This is a truly lovely Edwardian garnet and seed pearl brooch that I found in Austria at an antique show. It features a bird with his wings spread above the outer ring of the brooch, holding a branch with seed pearls in its mouth. The brooch is gold filled with prong and pave set rose cut garnets, all of which are present and in good condition. The bird and the branch are accented with seed pearls that have a wonderful warm glow to them.
The brooch measures 1 1/2" in diameter, 1 1/2" if you measure from the wing tip that sticks out. The c clasp on the back is in good working condition. All in all a fine quality brooch in excellent condition.
