Absolutely breathtaking antique mid-Victorian 18k yellow gold bar pin brooch features 1.92 carats of natural vibrant yummy plum colored rhodolite garnets. Accented with white gold applied quatrefoil embellishments and fleur de lis finials. The 18k gold mounting is completely hand-made with fine milgrained bead work accents. Features 3 cushion cut rhodolites each in secure 8 prong settings which measure 5mm x 3mm (.64 carat each, 1.92 carat total weight). The brooch measures 2-1/4" in length x 3/16" in width, and weighs 5.2 grams.

The piece is completely original with conical clasp, wide tubed hinge. No alterations or repairs, the garnets too, are all original to the piece. Typical of the majority of authentic antique Victorian jewels (particularly hand crafted pieces such as this), the piece is not gold hallmarked, but it has been carefully tested by two separate independent jewelers for karat fineness. The garnet in the center has one VERY tiny flea nip chip in the upper corner hidden under the prong with is very difficult to see even with magnification, and cannot be seen by the naked eye. Has been cleaned very lightly and retains most of its richly age darkened patina. In outstanding extremely well babied condition, mid-Victorian circa 1860-80. Garnet is the birthstone for the month of January. Truly delicious!

Be sure to see all three wonderful 18k rhodolite garnet mid-Victorian pieces that I recently acquired from the same estate (see the last image). Just type in "rhodolite" into the search bar of our web shops home page to see our other listings.
