An antique brooch from the early 1900s crafted in the Art Nouveau fashion. Set to the centre with a round faceted garnet of good purple/red colour, approx. 5.5mm diameter, and mounted in a rose gold collar with decorative edging. Around the garnet are pearl studded swirls of Arts & Crafts style wirework patterns. The pin is stamped on the reverse "9ct" with a simple hook fastener and working hinge. A delightful piece that's sure to enhance any scarf or jacket.
Garnet, besides being the birthstone for January, is also associated with friendship and trust.
