Star shaped jewellery is typical of the English Victorian era and this one is set with no less that 83 seed pearls in a stunning interpretation of the style. Unhallmarked as was quite usual with old jewellery, this pendant/brooch tests as 18ct gold.
The pearl cluster suspends from a pearl set loop through which a chain may be laced to whilst to the reverse of the brooch is a brooch pin.
The pearls range in size from approx. 1.7mm to 3.7mm diameter.
