THIS PIECE HAS BEEN SOLD.

 

Truly one of the prettiest honeymoon brooches I've seen, this Art Nouveau era piece contains one natural ruby and five natural sapphires--all of gorgeous color--set within a crescent moon and flower frame with artfully placed seed pearls.  Honeymoon brooches were given to a bride and became very popular during the late Victorian/Art Nouveau period.  This one is particularly gemmy and really beautifully designed!

Measures 7/8" in diameter.  Not stamped but acid-tested for metal content.  Illegible maker's mark.  All stones in good condition with minor wear typical of age.
