Pre-owned

Diamond antique crescent brooch in silver and 9ct yellow gold

£2,200.00

A beautiful Victorian brooch set with three rows of old cut diamonds graduating in size.  The 59 diamonds total approximately 2.00ct with a row of larger stones down the middle framed by smaller ones. 

Old cut diamonds were cut by hand without the aid of modern tools and technology and therefore there is some variation in size and shape, but all the diamonds in this piece provide a lovely sparkle as the piece is worn.    

It may surprise many people that the diamond’s setting are made out of silver. This is rarely done in modern jewellery but silver was the only white precious metal option widely available to jewellers until platinum started being used in jewellery on a regular basis following the discovery of large quantities near Johannesburg in 1924. The settings are backed with 9ct yellow gold.

The brooch pin on this piece has a screw fitting so that it can be removed.

Size approx. 26x28mm

In excellent condition considering its age although as an antique item we suggest that this piece is best suited to occasional rather than everyday wear.
