EARLY GEORGIAN antique 8 to 12 karat yellow gold brooch with ruby and green faceted glass stones, jointed

Price: $698.00
Description EARLY GEORGIAN antique 8 to 12 karat yellow gold brooch from the late 1700s to the early 1800's.  The red stone at the top is a ruby and the green stones are all faceted glass.

It is jointed above the teardrop-shape for movement, and it is 2-1/4" by 1-5/8" and with an antique style pin back.  Back in that era, is was common for jewelry makers to use a mix of metals, and this brooch demonstrates that.  Some parts are silver, some 8k and some 12k gold.  It weighs in total 12.25 grams.  Looking at the back, here is a place that a ribbon could be threaded through so this could also be worn as a choker!  The minute I saw this, it reminded me of an angel with outstretched wings!  View  View  View
