Victorian Garnet Love Knot Locket Brooch 15k c. 1850
This Victorian brooch is truly glorious! Made during the early to mid-Victorian period circa 1850, it is designed as a love knot with foil-backed garnet cabochons in bloomed 15k gold with intricate applied wirework. It also has a very small crystal compartment for hair or a memento, which at this time just has fabric in it and doesn't appear to have been used. In fact the condition of this entire brooch is pretty amazing and it's as golden as it appears in the photos! This is an exquisite example of the high Victorian period and would make a great addition to any collection!
Measures 1.75 x 1.5".
