These superb almandine garnets explode with azalea pink, mulberry and raspberry hues in a brooch of rare magnificence.
From the gem quality garnets to their fancy cut faceting and one-of-a-kind setting, this is a jewel that will envelope the heart with wonder and lasting resonance.
Ten vivid fancy-cut garnets are shaped into diamonds with their corners concave forming niches to contain the gold and diamond florettes. With a total weight of 18 carats, each garnet gem is set between petaled flowers with the four tips adorned with a single diamond.
All 18k yellow gold, the frame is clustered with 14 small flowers and four round bezels, each holding 1 to 4 old mine cut diamonds for a glittering garden of gleaming blooms.
With a total diamond weight of 1.32 carats (I-K, clarity SI1-3), the 44 old mine cut diamonds create a surface of light amidst saturated and intense color, sheen and dynamic intensity.
This jewel can be worn as a pendant or a brooch and includes a watch hanger fitting. This serves as a hook for holding a chain when worn as a pendant, or could be utilized to suspend a pearl or other dangling dainty.
Circa 1900, this antique creation defies words alone.
