Tell me more...
This beautiful brooch has been made in the Victorian Etruscan style, but we believe it to be a reproduction piece. Most likely 1960s-1970s. So it's a vintage brooch made in an antique style. Unlikely to have been British made, and more likely continental Europe or the USA.
The brooch is unmarked but we've had it x-ray tested to confirm that it is 14ct gold. The pin is made from a base metal, while the safety chain is 9ct gold. It sits in an 'AF Dalgleish of Perth' case, which may not be original (sadly we cannot find any information when this jeweller closed up shop). Our gut feeling is that the case is older than the brooch, but we are selling them as we found them - as a pair.
As you can see from the photos, this is a striking item of jewellery featuring five graduating citrine stones, the centre is oval cut and the four outer stones are round cut. Delicate gold ropework adorns the middle citrine setting and it's a lovely reproduction of an era in Victorian jewellery that was obsessed with archaeological finds and ancient jewellery.
The brooch is secured by a pin and hook at the rear. It will arrive packed in with our gemstone care card. Fast and free UK delivery via Royal Mail.
