Antique 9ct Gold Turquoise Cabochon Bar Brooch
A very pretty bar brooch, 6.5cm long, that we've listed at 9ct gold, but it may well be a little higher up towards 15ct (we're being cautious as our testing facilities are limited during lockdown). The pin is also gold, and this is definitely 9ct. The knife edge bar brooch is centered by a beautiful turquoise cabochon displaying a lovely black/brown matrix. The 1.1cm long turquoise is held firmly in place by 4, v-shaped claws. This charming antique piece is being sold in its original fitted case from Elkington & Co Ltd, in Glasgow. It's in very good condition, only thing to note is there is a loop for a safety chain but no safety chain attached. The antique turquoise brooch is secured by a pin and hook at the rear.
