It's difficult to put the beauty and history encapsulated in this stunning cut steel brooch into words.
A genuine antique from the Georgian era, it was crafted some 200 years ago and yet..somehow it looks slick and modern!
We can easily see it being worn on an oxidised silver chain or a black velvet ribbon about the neck, or pinned neatly at the collar of a blouse for the ultimate in chic "power dressing"!

The lace-like, open-work design is both romantic, feminine and striking- making it the perfect match for a confident, modern-day woman!
