GOOD: This Silver Georgian Garnet and Agate brooch is in a lovely condition for its age. The flat cut Garnets all have individual shades of reds and browns which make for a fantastic border and they are all safely set in the Silver brooch. Because of this brooches age some of the Garnets have a few chips and fleabites to them but it adds a charming and well-loved feel. The Agate has an interesting inclusion that makes it jump out at you and grab your attention! It was converted from a clasp to a brooch at some point quite early in its life, (most likely during Victorian times), so it is now ready to be worn straight away!
