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
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.
