Antique Rock Crystal & Carnelian Brooch | Edwardian Sterling Silver Pin | Antique Brooch - Faceted Quartz Crystal and Carnelian Cabochons

$140.00

An exquisite sterling silver brooch from the Edwardian era, set with three truly luscious stones. Rock crystal, beautifully faceted to give maximum sparkle sits between two glossy carnelian cabochons.

+ All the details

There are no silver stamps at all (not unusual for the era), the brooch is testing as sterling silver and is guaranteed as such. The back has a simple C-clasp with a typical Victorian style tube hinge.

The Stones:
Interestingly these are graduated in size.
The largest is a vivid tangerine colored translucent carnelian, the central stone is a sparkling faceted rock crystal stone and the smallest is again carnelian, more apricot in color with fine orange banding. The stones are collar set into a silver bezel with minimal decoration to the silver.

Sizea: The brooch is 1.37 inches or 35mm long and the largest stone measures 12mm diameter. The brooch is shown pinned to a life size torso in image #4.

Weight: 4.2 grams.

Age: very early 1900s

Condition:
Excellent. Very little sign of wear, no chips or cracks to the stones and the silver has nice natural patina. The pin is very sharp.

Janne's Notes:
Superbly designed with fabulous contrasts, expertly made - a charming brooch in near perfect order. Oh, those stones...
