ANTIQUE VICTORIAN TURQUOISE FRINGE BROOCH LOCKET 18CT GOLD CIRCA 1880
A highly unique Victorian Etruscan revival brooch decorated with beautiful Turquoise stones and crowned with a wonderful dome in the centre with a star set Diamond on top.
Etruscan revival pieces were crafted in the mid 1800s when ancient Etruscan jewellery was unearthed in tombs outside of Rome beginning a fascination with the style and giving birth to these beautiful pieces which were fashioned using the same ancient techniques.
The rounded 18ct Yellow Gold gallery displays detailed cannetille workmanship across the front with a wonderful fringe of articulated Golden tassels dangling from the bottom.
The piece is truly exquisite and steeped in history. Complete with a round locket on the reverse with an original glass window to store a treasured photo of your loved one inside.
We recommend you insure for £1500, We can provide a written Valuation on completion of the sale.
