We have fallen head over heals in love for this gorgeous Gold Victorian Turquoise and Pearl brooch pendant!
The placement of the seed Pearls and Turquoise cabochons have been cleverly put in a subtle star design which makes for a fabulously bold statement. Especially as there is such a unique contrast between the iridescent peachy Pearls and the vivid bright blue Turquoise gemstones raised upon a domed centre!
A Gold backdrop works beautifully bordering the colourful centre, adding a lovely, sumptuous textured border.
This darling accessory can be worn as a brooch to grace your coat lapel as well as a pendant, all you have to do is add your favourite antique chain and let this pendant do all the talking for you with it's majestic and unique beauty!

EXCELLENT: This Gold Victorian Turquoise and Pearl brooch pendant is in excellent condition. The Turquoise cabochons and Pearls have been set securely and have been kept wonderfully over their lifetime without any dints or fleabites. The decorative 15ct/18ct front has a lovely border. The back of the pendant, the c-clasp, bale and jump ring all test as 9ct Gold suggesting they are a later addition (but likely still antique!). The solid 15ct Gold pin and hinge works perfectly with a bale to add your favourite antique chain to wear as a pendant, incredible!
