Here is a Victorian era antique brooch like no other that we have ever had and is truly spectacular to wear and admire.
Made in 18k yellow gold (marked ), this antique brooch is of course in the form of a hand, holding a rose.
Antique rings, brooches and pendants holding a flower signifies a gift of friendship or token of affection.
Yet the detail in this brooch goes so much further, it has many of the elements we frequently associate with high style Victorian fashion: Look and admire the cuff with the floral design that shows to glimpse into the clothes of this era dotted 13 natural sea pearls; the hand with a "gold ring" on the finger made in the mother of pearl; this hand holds a rose which its leaves are made in 5 rose-cut diamonds and the rose in carved natural red coral.
This is a truly wonderful piece of Victorian jewelry for the collection.
Size: L: 54mm x L: 20mm (L: 2 1/8" x L: 4/5")
