A Victorian Turtle Scatter Pin Brooch
A Victorian turtle scatter pin brooch, the brooch comprising a pair of turtles, each turtle embellished with alternating lines of half pearls and cabochon-cut turquoises, with ruby eyes, to closed back yellow gold mounts, each turtle measuring approximately 1.6cm long, connected by a fine yellow gold belcher link chain measuring 21cm long, circa 1880, gross weight 6.4 grams.
A wonderfully charming Victorian turtle scatter pin brooch, made in around 1860. This piece features two delicate turtles, their shells embellished with pearls and bright turquoise stones and their eyes set with rubies. The turtles are connected by a chain to a central pin, which has an additional cabochon-cut turquoise set into it. Turquoise became popular in the mid-Victorian era, especially when paired with yellow gold. This lovely piece would add Victorian whimsy to a buttoned shirt.
