Description

Metal: Tests at least 18ct
Diamond content: 3-4ct
Ruby content: 1-11/2ct
Amethyst content: 1/2ct
Condition: Excellent commensurate to its age
This is truly rare piece,  A Georgian, 18th century brooch - stomacher, one of the best we've ever seen. 
This stunning brooch is centrally encrusted with very large foil backed rose cut diamonds with a surround of flat cut foil backed rubies and six amethysts on the sides.
A further 44 old antique cut diamonds flow around the outside of the brooch.
The diamonds are white and clean for rose cuts and the rubies are bright clean glistening and unrubbed.
We would estimate the diamond content at approx 3-4 carats (measured in situ.) The rubies at approx 1 - 1 1/2 carat. The weight is difficult to guage because the stones are flat based.
The two largest diamonds in the centre measure 5 mm x 5 mm  each.
The brooch is concave and gold backed with all stones silver set as was the way.
The weight is 15.9 grams
The pin is original and is removable from its hinge. The pin catch flattens down leading me to believe this must have been designed to wear as something other than a brooch as well, maybe there was a ring shank at sometime. 
The brooch measures approx 3 1/2 cm x 3 cm!
A stunning museum piece in a league of it's own try and find another.
