This classic late Victorian, c. 1880-1900, 14 karat gold snowflake or star form was a shape much loved and often worn in multiples by those lucky enough to own several. They sparkle like stars, especially in candlelight, and they adorned both the bodice and hairstyles, Today, they may be used on the same or even waistbands, hats and evening bags.
