We love everything about this antique Silver Amethyst pansy brooch; she's unique, feminine and quite frankly the cutest piece ever!
The petals consist of very pale Amethysts, each complete with wonderful facets which glint tremendously beneath the light. Amethysts are February's birthstone, so perhaps this piece will be just right for an upcoming birthday!

VERY GOOD. This antique Silver Amethyst pansy brooch is in very good condition overall. Each of the Amethysts are crispy and clear, and in the centre of the brooch lies a dainty Pearl nestled snugly! The Gold gilding has faded softly over time, but this is to be expected of a jewel from the Victorian era, over 100 years ago! The pin and c-clasp allow you to wear her with the utmost confidence, so this piece is perfect to wear straight from the box.
