163 rose cut bohemian garnets cover this 1 3/8" pin. The pyrope garnets are a beautiful red wine color and the rose cut makes them sparkle. Three layers create a dome to give this pin a depth of 1/2". The garnets range in size from 2mm round to 5mm pear shape and are set in a gold washed metal referred to as garnet gold. The pin is attached with a tube hinge which was used until around 1890. The safety catch was added at a later date as the original would have been a C-catch.
