Austro Hungarian Brooch

I love this very sweet little Austro Hungarian brooch and must admit it has been in and out of use in my own Jewellery box for some time but now it's time to let it go and change it for something else (the pluses of being an Antique Jewellery Retailer!).

It wears well on the lapel of a jacket or at the neck on a scarf and has always garnered many comments.

Dating to the early 20th Century, it features three very vibrant synthetic* rubies which remind me of pomegranate fruits and these alternate with real freshwater pearls and have a single freshwater pearl atop. All sit on a lacy plaque of silver gilt and and have silver gilt Acanthus leaves in betwixt.

There are hallmarks on the outer edge of the C clasp but alas these are too small to read.

Size: 1" in diameter / 2.5cm Height aprox 1/2" or 1.2mm
Weight: 7.1g

Synthetic Rubies have been made since the late 19thCentury and were made in commercial quantities since the beginning of the 20thcentury when they were used prolifically. A synthetic Ruby has exactly the same properties as a natural Ruby but it is grown in a lab rather than in nature. It should not to be confused with coloured glass.
So, here is an opportunity to buy the most beautiful little brooch from the early part of the 20th century that has a stunning coloured stones at a very good price - and who would know it is not natural but you!
