ABOUT THIS BROOCH

Measuring a sizable 1 1/2 inches in diameter, this mid-Victorian antique brooch is a combination of elements with the central focus on a pale amethyst half-sphere glowing like a crystal ball. The amethyst is surrounded by small orange coral and white shell beads, which are encircled by beautiful Etruscan style bead work and twisted wire elements crafted in 14 karat yellow gold. Suspended is a matching smaller 3/4 inch circle with a colorless crystal half sphere center topped with a pale amethyst half sphere crafted in base metal and gilded with yellow gold . This lovely brooch, measuring 2 5/8 inches in length, makes a bold statement and has been worn and loved during its long life (approximately 170 years!) and has some wear and tear on the back to prove it. We think it would look great pinned to a ribbon collar. For a lover of the true vintage antique.

About Victorian Jewelry

The eclectic Victorians didn’t limit themselves when it came to motifs and themes—if it struck their fancy, they turned it into jewelry. Sweet and sentimental with a distinct romantic streak, Victorian gems expanded upon their Georgian predecessors. The array of styles that blossomed (sometimes quite literally) during this era endure to this day.

Jewelry Care

As with anything of value, especially sentimental value, taking good care of your vintage and antique jewelry from Lang will enhance its beauty and extend its lifespan. We encourage you to have your jewelry checked and cleaned by us or by your trusted local jeweler every six months, to ensure that each piece is in good wearable condition with all gemstones in place. It’s not uncommon for stones to loosen over time, and it’s much easier to tighten a loose stone than to replace a lost one! As stated in our Repair Policy, we strongly recommend that you allow us to perform any repairs, since our jewelers are specialists in restoring vintage and antique jewelry.
