This Antique Victorian C 1850's beautifully hand carved onyx, seed pearl and 10K rose gold brooch measures approx. 1 3/4" long by 1 1/8" wide and weighs by scale 7.9 grams. The leaf spray motif features a large hand carved black onyx leaf or blossom with a small leaf off to the side. Each leaf is centered by a bezel set seed pearl.The leaves are each on the ends of 10k gold stems. The larger stem is stippled textured with the small stem "growing" off the larger stem. The leaves are matte finished with bright polish veins to the large leaf.
This beautifully carved and rendered brooch has so much realistic detail. The leaves are mounted to leaf shape rose gold mountings that are only visible from the back, once again a sign that this is a wonderfully rendered piece of jewelry. There is a long pin stem with a tube hinge and a C style catch dating it to Circa 1850.The brooch is free from any defects of any kind which is quite incredible for a piece from this era. Acid testing shows the metal to be 10K rose gold. Please look at the enlarged pictures for a more accurate description and to see the detail of the piece. Make sure you look at the back as well as the front.
