This Antique Victorian Bohemian Garnet Butterfly Brooch boasts a deep crimson red that glows. The hand-cut stones are rose cut to give more sparkle to the brooch. The brooch has prong and bezel set stones pave style, showing little of the setting.
The brooch closes with a c-clasp. The metal is 800 silver (sterling silver is 925) with a gold wash. The less expensive metals made this jewelry affordable to more people, driving the popularity among Victorian shoppers. The gold wash is largely intact, making this brooch both rare and valuable.
This brooch is a perfect gift for her or an excellent addition to your own jewelry collection. The antique butterfly brooch is in remarkably good condition, though it is missing one small stone on the lower left wing. Pieces of this quality are becoming hard to find.
