A beautifully crafted ruby and diamond scarf clip from the turn of the century. With delightful attention to detail from the hand applied twisted wire work and bead decoration to the setting of the mixed cut rubies into a flower shaped mount to each side of a rose cut diamond.
The scarf clip is oval in shaped to facilitate the ease and comfort to wear and fastens via a pin to attach to the scarft and a strong hinge fastener. Measuring approx. 1.25 inches wide x 0.25 inch high x 0.63 inch deep.
The reverse of the clip is plain polished and stamped with the hallmark for 9ct gold from the Birmingham Assay Office and the date letter for the year 1898.
