This antique gold sweetheart brooch would make such a special, one of a kind gift for a loved one. It features a heart inlaid with mother of pearl and set with a centre blue sapphire. The border of the heart has the most beautiful red enamel border too.
The brooch is a sweet, small size, perfect for pinning onto a jacket/coat lapel or even a fine knit jumper/sweater. Pins like this can also be added onto chains with dog clips as a pendant/small extender too.
The brooch is made of yellow gold that tests as at least 9ct gold (the brooch is unhallmarked). There is a simple safety pin style clasp to the back.
The brooch weighs approx 1.4g and the heart measures approx 10.5mm tall by approx 10.3mm wide. The pin measures approx 21.2mm wide.
Condition - The brooch is in good antique condition to say it is over 100 years old but as with most antiques, it does show signs of age and wear, including surface wear to the gold, centre sapphire and enamel. There are a couple of chips to the top layer of enamel (not the red layer undernearth) towards the top left and the bottom point of the heart. The brooch pin still works well. Please see photos.
*Please note the antique box is not included in the sale but the brooch will be shipped in a new presentation box and pouch*
