This is a very nice example of an antique (circa late 1890's) French jet mourning bar brooch. It is in almost perfect condition with only a bit of metal wear on the back near the clasp, with no chips or scratches to the jet, and no wear to the pearls. The edges and corners are very slightly beveled, and three seed pearls are arranged in a row, set in a tested rose gold filled setting. French jet is basically black glass made to look like English Whitby jet, which is a mineral gemstone made from fossilized wood. The clasp is C style, and the mechanism is secure and in good working condition, with a straight pin and good spring. This brooch was very well made and has stood the test of time. Brooch measures 5/16"(1cm) by 2 1/4"(6cm).
