This Georgian Diamond brooch is good enough to eat, with its glittering rose cut Diamonds (and one table cut Diamond!) and superb natural Amethyst centre-stone!
Set in Silver with a Gold back as was customary at the time, this stunning antique brooch is the perfect size for daily wear. It's small enough to be worn discreetly by day on a jacket, lapel or cardigan, but is special enough for a romantic evening, and looks wonderful worn as a choker on a black velvet ribbon.
The Diamonds aren't flashy like modern-day round brilliant cuts but have a demure and lady-like sparkle that is so appealing to us antique jewellery lovers!
The crimped or "pie-crust" setting around the violet Amethyst is a secure and beautiful period setting, whilst the open back gives the jewel light and luminosity.
We've added a simple 16" Silver chain so you can wear it straight away.

This characterful Georgian Diamond brooch is a complete one-of-a-kind piece and offered in very good antique condition. For an item that's nearly 200 years old we really can't fault her! The Diamonds and Amethyst are all original antique and set firmly in their settings. The brooch works well and is strong enough to secure light or thick fabrics. There is a small amount of wear the to facet edges of the gems as you might expect of a genuine piece of Georgian jewellery. The natural Diamonds vary in colour ever so lightly, which only adds to the unique beauty of the piece, and sits well with the violet hue o the Amethyst. Simply beautiful!
