Trust Badge



This antique Gold Amethyst Pearl crescent brooch is rich in character! Crafted from solid 9ct Gold with a 15ct Gold pin, this brooch has a lovely heart-shaped Amethyst (2.20ct) at the centre, framed by seed Pearls and Gold thistle details. 

The unusual combination and elements of this brooch perhaps reveal the original owner's intentions. Thistles were not only the national flower of Scotland but they were a common motif within the Victorian language of flowers. Plus, crescents were a common motif in romantic jewellery as they symbolised the birth of a new relationship.
