An early Victorian almandine garnet brooch – pendant
This magnificent brooch dates from the early part of Queen Victoria’s reign.
It is formed from multiple flower shaped clusters of pinky-red almandine garnets to form one big flowerhead design.
Originally these would have been worn on the bustline of a gown but now, it lends itself to a statement brooch or a pendant.
The plain gold closed-back setting has a hinged brooch pin with hook catch as well as a fixed ring at the top to enable it to be worn with a chain as a pendant.
Measurements: 5cm wide.
