Stunning Victorian Bohemian Garnet Star Pin / Brooch
Presented is a stunning Victorian Bohemian garnet pin or brooch. This piece dates to the second half of the 1800s. The pin is made in the form of an eight-pointed star, with four layers of varying sizes of garnet. The garnets are a rich deep red, very vibrant and appealing. The metal is a pinchbeck material, typical of Bohemian garnet pieces. The pin has a lever catch style safety.
The pin is in great overall condition. Three garnets are missing, but this is not very noticeable considering how many garnets there are overall. It is likely that a couple of the stones are replaced, but this is not easy to notice. The clasp is a replacement, though it is itself quite old.
The pin is about 1 5/8 inches in diameter.
The pin weighs 11.2 grams.
