Product Description

A stunning Antique Georgian flat cut Garnets Mourning Brooch, that has been mounted on a later 15 carat (625 tested) gold circular with 2 ears backing in order to make it more fashionable during the Victorian era.

The brooch features 10 natural flat cut foil back garnets which were very popular during the Georgian era, set in silver collets and with a millegrain edge. The garnets surround a central rectangular gold cartouche with plaited hair under glass. The backing plate of the original brooch is made of gold plated brass. The Victorian gold addition has a horizontal pin clasp.
