Stunning antique carved red coral brooch features a carved cherub face surrounded by hearts, roses and leaves. Circa 1850's, this brooch measures 2.25 inches long, 1.25 inches wide and weighs 18.6 grams. The back clasp and pin stem look to be replacements and of silver color, while the rest of the metal appears to be of rose gold. With the way the back is fashioned I was unable to test for gold purity, likely 9Ct. There are 2 metal wires that are empty, they may have had pieces of coral on them at one point. This is a lovely and unique piece of antique coral jewelry in good condition, ready to wear or gift!
