Victorian Wheat Motif Onyx and Pearl Brooch/Pendant
What a striking contrast. A gleaming gold, pearl-studded sheaf of wheat stands tall against a glossy black onyx plaque, in this alluring Victorian brooch. Wheat was an often-used motif in Victorian jewelry: in addition to presenting a pretty pattern, the hearty grain was associated with women because of the shared ability to provide for society--wheat nourished women, who then used wheat (bread) to feed their families. That's the power of women and wheat. Hand fabricated in 14K gold, the brooch has two bales that allow it to be worn vertically or horizontally as a pendant. Measures 2 11/16 by 1/2 inches. 18 inch, 14 karat yellow gold chain included.
