A lovely, beautifully detailed brooch demonstrating Etruscan design and created in the c1900 in England. It has a partial maker’s mark as well as the Victorian stamp “9CT” for the quality of the gold.  A most attractive piece, as it has that large, faceted citrine, which sits in the yellow gold so well, having the same warmth of colour. The setting around the citrine has those very typical Etruscan gold balls, both along the top and bottom of the setting.

Two horizontal bars form the main structure and there is a lovely barley twist gold rod running through the gap between those bars. I love the way it protrudes at either end and is finished on each end with a gold ball.  A vertical detail runs down both sides of the brooch and is decorated with four tiny seed pearls.

On the verso it has some lead soldering visible from a historic repair but it is not seen from the front thankfully. It measures approx 4.9cm in width and the citrine is in excellent condition.

A very attractive design. I will send in a new gift box by Tracked and signed delivery. Boxes in the images are for display only. Thank you.
