This antique Diamond Garnet bow brooch is an exceptional piece of craftsmanship! Rich in fiery sparkle, this beautiful brooch is inlaid with 1.45ct of old cut Diamonds, with a flat cut Garnet foiled drop.
There are many reasons why you will love this Victorian brooch, from the Diamond carat weight to juicy foiling on that Garnet. But one of the reasons why we love this piece most is how the jeweller has artfully captured the bow blowing in the wind. This is a wonderful heirloom piece for your collection.

VERY GOOD: This antique Diamond Garnet bow brooch is in truly lovely condition. This brooch is rich in antique charm, with all of the Diamonds slightly different shapes and sizes. The brooch is of Victorian origin, whereas the charm is of Georgian origin, but they go together very well indeed. All of the gems are secure in their settings, and the Garnet's foiling is just as beautiful as she was all those centuries ago. You can actually remove the Garnet drop if you wish, turning her from night into day.
