A wonderful and quite hard to find antique Rose Gold and cabochon turquoise brooch;  English,  c. 1850 - 80.


The design, quite simple in appropriate mid-Victorian manner, emphasizes the four large well matched cabochon, almost bead shaped stones, often referred to as Persian turquoise.


This brooch is in extremely nice estate condition.  We see no chips, cracks or damage to turquoise.  The stones, which vary slightly in size and shape, are very well matched in color and all appear to be original.

Rose gold setting is very nice, with no noted problems.  Clasp appears to be original; works well and holds securely.  There is a very tiny loop located near clasp, which may have been used to secure a safety chain, no longer present but easily added.  See 2nd image.


Although early jewelry examples set with turquoise can be found, most often the stones are extremely small. This brooch is quite unusual in that it is set with such large cabochons, which is rather rare and hard to find.

A very nice, early, Grand Tour era Victorian brooch pin.
