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.

Weight: c. 13.3g
