This truly beautiful, Victorian silver and paste brooch is old, dating to circa 1850. The silver is unmarked but tests as sterling silver and I believe it to be of English origin.

The brooch consists of a bow with a pendant heart. It measures 1 ¼” (3.2cms) long and is 1 2/16” (2.8cms) wide. It weighs 7.2 grams.

The little bow at the top is attractively encrusted with faceted, pave set pastes. At the centre are two larger, prong set pastes, the lower of which hangs from a tiny hook and a further hook attaches it to the puffed heart. The latter has a central heart shaped stone and is framed by small pastes.

The brooch is beautifully finished on the back and has an old style c clasp, just very slightly bent from use.

This wonderful antique pin is in great condition with no missing or dead stones. The heart has very light surface wear only visible with a loupe. The other stones have that gentle sparkle associated with very old pieces. Here and there is an attractive glint of gold – maybe the stones were foiled originally.

This absolutely charming Victorian pin would make a lovely gift for a special person. Where will you ever find another like this? It will arrive carefully presented in a gift box.
