VERY GOOD: This Victorian Silver Carnelian brooch is great antique condition. As you can see in the photographs, there are drill holls in the back of the gemstone which isn't uncommon to find in jewellery from this era, perhaps alluding to the fact that it was originally part of a different adornment. We also believe that the pin is a later addition too, although this gives you greater assurance over its strength and durability. Nevertheless, the Carnelian is snug and smooth - just how you want it!
