We adore the moody blood-red tones of this gorgeous antique Garnet cluster brooch! The perfect collectible, it oozes Victorian glamour and style, a fitting Gothic gift for an antique lover.
Poised at the centre is a plump cabochon cut Garnet with an 8.22 carat weight. Cushioned by 34 rose cut Garnets, with a total combined weight of 4.44ct, this cluster of red glittering jewels will make a statement no matter how you wear it.
The variety of ruby-red tones complement the Garnet Gold of which it has been set in. It is no secret that the Victorians adored the dramatic Gothic tones that Garnets give in abundance, so if you truly want a piece of jewellery that encapsulates the Victorian aesthetic, this is the brooch for you!

Here at Lillicoco, we pride ourselves on meticulously inspecting every piece of jewellery, and here we found a tiny chip at the base of the central cabochon Garnet only under a magnifying jewellers loupe. This is not noticeable and does not affect the delicious cherry-red brilliance of the Garnet overall! In fact, the chip could be from whence it was created over 150 years ago, so it is a fascinating insight into the original maker.
