Antique Victorian 10K Yellow Gold Natural Rose Cut Garnet Brooch For RestorationA lovely period original Victorian brooch. Features 8 rose cut natural garnets appox 3.9mm x and estimated 2.25mm. The center of the brooch feature a natural rose cut garnet approx 4mm x an estimated 2.25mm surrounded by 8 petite natural rose cut garnets measuring approx 2.5mm round with an estimated depth of 1.25mm. I suspect the garnets in this are bohemian but I did not bother to have the stones reviewed due to the repair requirements.
The round brooch features nice metal work which gives the impression it was quite likely hand worked. The gold portions have wear and will need some soldering work done. In addition, the center burst is missing 3 retainers and that will need addressed as well. The outer wrap around the center burst was "mushed" at some point and will need the attention of a craftsman.
The diameter of the brooch is right about 30.65mm.
The pin on the back of this piece is not gold and is a little sloppy
Light facet wear on the stones consistent with age
Would make a lovely pendant conversion
The all inclusive weight on this piece is 4.5 grams
