A pristine boxed Victorian delicacy! Entirely hand made, with the greatest skill this brooch is a tour de force of fine gold work, each element applied by a steady hand in 15ct yellow gold (used solely in Britain between 1854-1932). Two hearts are linked and ornamented with exquisite graduated beading, the whole Mercury gilded a rich 22ct gold save for the gemset flowers which remain a slightly rosier hue creating a pretty contrast, these are studded with Rubies and natural Sea Pearls.
Measures 2 inches in length and closes with the traditional 'C' clasp. In it's original presentation box, this would make the most splendid gift.
