22K Gold Georgian Victorian Etruscan Brooch Double Griffin Head Ruby EyesAntique late Georgian early Victorian Etruscan double Griffin head brooch with foil back ruby cabochon eyes. The description is brief because the piece speaks for itself. 22K Gold Milligrain over approx. 14K gold. Damaged area is still reading 21.7ish Karats gold and zero acid reaction in the area. Exquisite Detail on this piece. Someone paid a lot of this piece when it was made.
Pin latch on this has been replaced. Damaged to the 22K Etruscan gold design element on the back side of the piece. T pin is 10K gold.
Fabulous, unique and rare period piece. I personally think this would make an outstanding pendant conversion. I have included an image or what this might look like using a Victorian era 18K gold book chain necklace. The necklace is NOT part of this sale and is used as a example to help you visualize what it might look like as a pendant.

All of my gold and silver is authenticated before listing for sale. This piece has been xray analyzed using a Niton XRF Spectrometer to ensure the metal makeup meets industry standards for solid gold jewelry. Where appropriate, acid testing has been used as well. You will not buy gold or silver from me that does not meet the industry standards for how the piece is marked unless noted in the listing.
Gemstones have been tested using a presidium gem tester and have not been reviewed, except where noted, by a gemologist so please assume they are lab produced stones as my opinions are only my opinions. Diamonds have been verified using a presidium diamond tester, they have not been sized or graded by a gemologist. All measurements of stones have been done using a digital caliper, are approximate and may not be exact.
