We simply love this exquisite 18ct Gold Garnet brooch! Featuring intricate cannetille Gold work and one of the juiciest natural Garnets we have ever seen.
This delicious Cabochon Garnet appears as if it is an immortalised plump red Grape, emanating mulberry tones and also natural fissures in the light. A divine piece, the Garnet is given its proper crowning glory surrounded by intricate Gold, a gorgeous Etruscan style piece to add to your collection.
Cannetille was a meticulously detailed form of Gold work where the Gold was meant to appear as if it was embroidered onto the frame, taking inspiration from exotic countries of Portugal and India. Rich in history, aesthetic and juiciness, we are so jealous of whoever gets their hands on this piece.
