A superb Etruscan Revival 14 kt. yellow gold brooch with a hidden locket on the reverse for the hair or picture of a loved one. It has granulation around the outside rim, a floral motif on the center ring and a raised center with a lovely design. There is a C clasp. A hook at the top on the back allows a watch to be attached. It weighs 8.74 dwt.
The art of granulation was perfected by the Etruscans and rediscovered years later. This brooch is a good example.
The condition is great, especially for its age.
