A Late Victorian Chick And Wishbone Brooch

Description

A late Victorian wishbone and chick brooch, the chick set with rose-cut diamonds and cabochon ruby-set eye, facing an natural pearl in the form of egg, all within an old-cut diamond-set wishbone, the diamonds estimated to weigh 1 carat, all set in silver to yellow gold back with gold pin fitting, circa 1890, measuring approximately 3.7 x 1.5cm, gross weight 4.4 grams, illustrated in “Jewelry For Gentlemen” by James Sherwood, page 198.

This whimsical late Victorian brooch features a chick perched inside a wishbone. The chick’s eye is a single bright ruby, while the rest of the pin is set with glittering diamonds throughout. Victorian jewellery in the shape of birds was popular amongst sportsmen, and this is a good example Victorian jewellery that incorporates both a bird and a lucky motif, the wishbone. This lovely brooch would be a perfect addition to a jacket lapel or a tie.
