Story

One of the more favored motifs from the Victorian era is that of the star. This was also one of the times when silver was preferred over yellow gold as the metal diamond jewelry highlighting the whiteness of the stone (white gold and platinum were not in use yet).

Beautifully designed in terms of both architecture and aesthetics, this late Victorian brooch shimmers with all the brightness a star can afford with eighty-five (85) old mine and rose cut diamonds densely sprinkled on every available surface of the silver-topped gold.

Radiating from the center .25 carat diamond, six diamond-encrusted points are superimposed atop an open work design substructure of diamond set scrolling motifs and marquise shaped points for a total estimated diamond weight greater than 3 carats of fiery luminescence.

The beloved two-for-one versatility in a piece of jewelry can be seen on the reverse which reveals a removable gold screw brooch fitting enabling the brooch to be worn as a pendant (with a simple addition of a bale if desired just contact us).
