Remarkable Victorian 14K Turquoise Diamond Brooch

Presented is an incredibly well made, Victorian 14 karat yellow gold brooch or
pin made during the 1840s-70s. This piece is most likely Italian in origin, but
perhaps German or Austrian. This piece has a very strong Etruscan Revival look,
and of course it is genuine Etruscan Revival work. The brooch is decorated with
millgrain finished wire pieces in geometric shapes and swirls. The center is set
with an old, mine cut diamond that is about 8-10 points, surrounded by four
great turquoise stones. The pin has several bands of rope and wire deocrations
along the edges. The back has a beveled glass-topped insert for a locket. The
bottom of the pin has a small hook to hang a lapel watch, fob or pendant from.

This piece has been tested with nitric acid and is guaranteed to be 14 karat
purity. This pin is not hallmarked, as is often the case from a piece of this
age.

This piece is in fabulous overall condition, especially for its age. There
are no missing pieces, no dents, no breaks, no splits, no missing pieces and no
repairs.

The pin measures 1 3/4 inches in diameter and weighs 21.5 grams. Very solid
and heavy.
