This beautiful, Art Nouveau diamond and gemstone brooch is an original, unique item of antique jewellery. The principal diamond looks huge in its setting, and spreads at a wonderful 2.5 cts, but this does not mean that is the official or total weight, as the old rose cut diamond has not been removed from its setting. There are a further 22 old rose cut diamonds within this antique art nouveau brooch, which have been set in their original setting of silver. I believe the gold on the brooch is 15ct, but has not been tested. The blue stones are small rose cut sapphires, plus one tiny red ruby at the top. I can’t say this is the finest item of antique jewellery I have owned, but it is an exciting, old brooch, full of rugged charm and character, typical of this era, and can be worn on occasions as a statement piece.
