Georgian Garnet & Pearls Brooch
A very pretty Georgian brooch circa 1810-1830. This is my very first Georgian brooch and I am very excited! It is set with 10 garnets and 16 seed pearls.
I think it has at least 9ct gold. The colour of the gold is very bright yellow.
It has (unfortunately) been repaired at one side of the brooch.
The size is not too big but not too small either.
I really like that the garnets colour are all very clear. They are red to purple-ish. Maybe they are Rhodolite Garnet?
I think it is a mourning brooch as the picture above shows plaited hair in the middle. It is stunningly beautiful and in a good condition for the age (despite of a repair mark, of course).
