This Victorian rose cut Garnet brooch is in wonderful antique condition throughout, so much so it's hard to believe it was created over a century ago. The Garnets are all bright with no nibbles or signs of wear to any of their facets, their settings keeping them securely held in place. The rose Gold gilt is bright with only minor wear commensurate with age, adding to her antique charm. Either wear her as she comes or suspend her across your collarbones on a chain as a sweet pendant.
