Victorian Carved Agate & Pearl Brooch
Banded agate has been masterfully carved in the realistic manner of a sea shell. The hard stone has been set in a 14k yellow gold coronet pendant mount with an open work under-gallery accented with a scalloped design. The top edge of the mount has been embellished with twenty-two (22) tiny rose cut diamonds of an estimated .25 carat total weight.
The top of the pendant has been “crowned” with a pair of silver scrolls set with additional rose cut diamonds and a diamond-encrusted silver dangle with a natural pearl (untested buy assumed natural due to age and examination). In all, seventeen (17) rose cut diamonds appoint the pearl with a diameter of more than 6 mm.
Date: Circa 1880.
Measurements: 1-1/2 inches (3.6 cm) in length including bale by 1-1/8 inches (2.9 cm) in width. Weight of 10.2 grams (6.6 dwt).
Condition: Excellent; one diamond replaced; one tiny chip to agate edge visible with magnification.
Note: Diamonds have not been removed from their mounts to preserve the integrity of the setting. All diamond weights have been approximated by measurement and formula and may vary from actual weights.
