This is a beautiful antique gold star brooch, late Victorian in age and made during a time when the Princess of Wales (who would become Queen Consort), began a trend for women adorning themselves in moon and star shaped jewellery.

The Victorians and Edwardians believed that stars denoted guidance, whether that be spiritual or otherwise, and the motif became incredibly popular. The Queen Consort, of course, would wear her stars studded with diamonds, not pearls!

This lovely old star brooch has been fashioned from 18ct gold with a base metal pin. It bears no marks, but we have had the metal x-ray tested to be sure of its purity. The brooch is in great condition for its age - all pearls appear original except for one replacement.

Your antique star brooch will arrive packed in our recycled kraft jewellery box along with our tailored gemstone care card. Fast and free UK delivery via Royal Mail.

Your jewellery will arrive in a display box made from recycled card. We only package using recycled materials, and we think this compliments your ethical vintage purchase perfectly.

A written valuation is provided for all individual jewellery pieces priced at £1000 or more.
