Victorian Ruby & Diamond Witch's Heart Brooch
* * SOLD * *
A scarce Victorian era brooch, modeled in 18k yellow gold and silver, that takes the form of two witches' hearts. These bewitched hearts overlap in a way that suggests they are bound together— one is set with natural, old cut rubies, while the other is set with glinty rose cut diamonds. A natural pearl rests at the cleave of each heart. This brooch has a long pin stem, and it fastens with a curly c-catch. We think this is especially elegant and graphic, as it is not topped with a bow or a crown! This is French— it bears a very small series of hallmarks on the c-catch.
Measures approx 25.6 x 20.65 mm; rubies (29) and diamonds (29) measure approx 1.3 mm; pearls (2) measure approx 2.5 mm.
