This Arts & Crafts Era Silver Carnelian cross brooch will catch your eye. Crafted from Sterling Silver with zesty Carnelian cabochons, this brooch contains the rebellious style and substance that the Arts and Crafts movement was famous for.
Not only super collectible, this brooch is very striking. The Sterling Silver has accrued a deep moody Patina from age, making the Carnelian "pop" out of its surface and it is shaped into a liberal interpretation of a cross design, another sartorial hallmark of the Arts and Crafts era.

VERY GOOD: This Arts & Crafts Era Silver Carnelian cross brooch is in fantastic condition. Considering its antiquity, the entirety of this brooch has lasted very well indeed. The Patina is a sign of age, but we think that it perfectly suits the brooch and the Carnelian. Not only does this give the brooch a gracefully aged look but it possesses an overall antique charm that is un-matched in contemporary jewellery! All of the Carnelian gems are smooth, secure, and free from wear too. The back of the brooch has some subtle scratches, but the pin is in perfect working order.
