A gorgeous original Victorian Silver etched brooch inlaid with the two different colour golds.
And in the centre in rose gold is a delightful butterfly.
And several of the flowery leaves are yellow gold.
This brooch is from the ‘aesthetic’ period between 1880 to 1900.
This type of floral motif was all the rage as jewellery was becoming ‘lighter and brighter’ in contrast to the heavy earlier Victorian period.
It is made of sterling silver and 9 carat gold and has a secure clasp.
It’s 37mm in diameter.
A wonderful gift or a timeless treat for yourself.
