Be Exquisite... gorgeous antique brooch is Georgian or early Victorian in origin. The base of the brooch is sterling silver, with a sterling ring the surrounds the central design element; this outer ring has two inset seed pearls on the sides of the central element and a silver detail on the top and bottom edges. Tiny sterling beadwork surrounds the inner base; the inner base edge is gold, oral tradition has it as 14k but I have not tested it and it is not marked.

The central stone is onyx with a lovely gold pique inset of a bird resting on a branch with three inset seed pearls. The brooch clasp runs up and down, as opposed to side to side and has a safety clasp that has been added sometime. The quality of the craftmanship on this brooch is superb; the bird exquisitely crafted.

In good vintage condition; there are a few very light surface scratches on the onyx, but not very noticeable unless you look closely; the clasp closes tightly and stays closed.

Dimensions: 1.5” x 1.25”

Hallmarks: none
