A beautiful super rare and highly collectible Victorian, Circa 1880s diamond and enamel trefoil Brooch, the realistically modeled shamrock or clover leaf set throughout with old mine, cushion, European and other old cut diamonds on a serpentine branch embellished with further diamonds and bark highlighted with dark navy enamel; width 4.1cm; total estimated weight of diamonds 2.66cts; cased by Mappin & Webb***
Condition: The condition is good with only slight scuffing commensurate with age, and the enamel in very good condition, with just one minor (and shallow) loss. The pin and catch are in good working order, though the pin may be a replacement, and there is a repair to the catch base and to the center back of the brooch. The diamonds are bright lively and well-matched; dimensions of the largest (cushion cut) stone are 4.33 x 4.27 x 3.43 ( estimated .57ct ); internally estimated VVS -VS clarity ; estimated color H-I- J, but setting makes assessment difficult. Gross weight 6.28g
The firm was started by Joseph Mappin, in 1810, with a partner, Mr Arundel. The company is now a retail jeweller, and Royal Warrant holder.
