Stellar Antique Aquamarine & Diamond Brooch
Cast your eyes upon this stellar and dazzling platinum brooch from the years of King Edward VII and his beautiful consort Alexandra. A very fine natural aquamarine has been cut into an oval shape and faceted. The glorious gem of an estimated weight of more than 20 carats has a beautiful crown (top of stone) accented with a double row of facets. Medium blue, the overall coloration is even and reflects the lights beautifully.
A narrow platinum bezel hugs the faceted beauty as a surround of sixteen (16) old mine cut diamonds. Each is estimated at .20 carats each, or 3.2 carats total. The diamonds are mostly I-K color with a few graded L-M. The clarity averages SI1 with several graded S12. Knife edge platinum work creates a marvel of an under gallery with open work design worthy of accolades and applause.
Date: Circa 1900.
Measurements: 1-1/8 inches (2.9 cm) in length by 1-1/16 inches (2.7 cm) in width. Weight of 14.3 grams (9.2 dwt).
Condition: Excellent; later pin fittings with evidence of silver solder at base of each (only visible on the reverse); later fold up and down pendant loop; 6 diamonds with small to minute chips visible with a loupe; a tiny amount of facet wear to the aquamarine.
Note: Stones were not removed to preserve the integrity of the setting. All weights are approximated by measurement and formula and may vary from actual weights. Grading may vary if stones are removed.
