Classic and elegant, this is a fine Victorian era brooch that features a large domed crystal glass cabochon at its center. The crystal cabochon exhibits remarkable faceting – it has at least 40 rectangular shaped facets, rising to a peaked dome. This stunner glitters and twinkles when struck with reflected light, riveting one’s attention. The stone is held in place by fancy ornate gold tone prongs, atop an elaborate gilt bezel. Vibrant cobalt blue enamel surrounds the bezel, which is edged with a gilt border. The reverse is gilt over brass, I think, and it closes with a period correct tube hinge clasp with a ‘C’ closure. The condition is excellent – no chips to the enamel and very slight surface scratching on the glass, which is only visible through a 10X loop. This eight sided beauty measures 1 3/8 inches wide, one and an eighth inch long, and approximately a half inch in height. Distinctive and unusual, this hundred plus year old brooch is an outstanding example of Victorian style. You will be pleased. $119.00
