A fine and impressive antique Victorian 0.02 carat amethyst, 0.13 carat diamond and 15 carat yellow gold 'ostrich' bar brooch; part of our diverse antique jewellery and estate jewelry collections
This fine and impressive antique bird brooch has been crafted in 15ct yellow gold.
The Victorian brooch is ornamented with two differing sized yellow gold settings realistically modelled in the form of ostriches.
The ostriches are each embellished with a collet set cabochon cut amethyst representing the eye, in addition to impressive pavé set Dutch cut diamonds reproducing the feathers.
The 15ct yellow gold bar secures to the reverse with a hinged pin and clasp fastening, and benefits from the additional security of a 9ct yellow gold safety chain.
This impressive Victorian brooch is fitted to a fine and impressive hinged leatherette presentation box with a velvet and satin lined interior, securing with a push fit catch.
The interior of the box bears the retailer's mark 'By Special Appointment. To His Excellency the Governor, Government House, Capetown. A Fischer & Co. Jewellers & Watchmakers. Gold and Silversmiths, Diamond Setters, Medallists, Opticians and Engravers, Port Elizabeth'.
This diamond bird bar brooch has been independently tested using state of the art technology (Niton XL2 Analyzer) and verified as 15 carat gold.
This impressive antique brooch is supplied with an independent diamond grading report card.
Images do not always reflect the true colour and brilliance of gemstones and diamonds. The video however provides a truer representation of the actual colour and showcases each stone.
This impressive antique diamond bird bar brooch is excellent quality, set with impressive diamonds displaying a fine white colour and brilliance.
The impressive amethysts display fine colour and brilliance.
The brooch is an excellent gauge of gold and is in excellent condition.
Reflections in photographs may detract from the true representation of this fine example of antique amethyst jewellery/estate jewelry.
