Antique Victorian Bohemian Garnet Brooch

Item #399990


Richly hued 'Bohemian' Pyrope Garnets from the mines in the north westernmost Czech Republic, known as Bohemia, faceted in the traditional rose-cut style and clustered together in a 'rosette' they have a stunning impact. With a rich deep red wine colouring, gaining their fiery blood red colourway from chromium and manganese, these gorgeous red garnets have been mined in the area since the 16th century. Traditionally set in Garnet Gold (low grade gold) this brooch has a warm berry like appearance and deep sparkle. 

Measures an inch across and finished with a classic 'C' clasp with an additional sliding safety fixture.
