Luminous seed pearls outline this charming Edwardian brooch in the shape of a wishbone. The baroque pearls have not been x-rayed but are likely natural as this brooch pre-dates the invention of pearl culturing. The brooch is constructed of 10 karat gold.
SIZE: 1-1/16" high x 1/2" wide
MARKS: "10K" on the clasp
AGE: circa 1900-1910
CONDITION: very good antique condition. The clasp is a replacement and there is some soft solder visible on the gold surrounding the clasp, visible mostly on the back, but a little on the side. It also appears that one seed pearl may be a replacement and there is a little glue residue visible around this pearl.
