A Victorian Diamond-set Star Brooch
A Victorian diamond-set star brooch, to the centre an old european-cut diamond estimated to weigh 1.5 carats, surrounded by eight old-cut diamonds I the form of a form of a floral cluster, to a diamond-set eight ray star frame, with eight knife-edge bars each terminating to a single-diamond, the diamonds estimated to weigh 7.5 carats in total, all set in silver to yellow gold back, circa 1890, measuring approximately 4cm in diameter, gross weight 11.8 grams. A Victorian brooch in very good condition. Unmarked tested as 18ct Gold and Silver.
A fabulous Belle Epoque brooch. Celestial motifs were very popular in the Victorian era, and this brooch is a striking example of the popular late nineteenth-century star symbol and would be a handsome addition to a silk scarf or worn on a blouse.
