Etruscan Revival Mediterranean Coral 18 Karat Gold BroochRive Gauche Jewelry
This gorgeous Victorian brooch from ca 1870 is truly a masterpiece of jewelry craftsmanship. The amazing granular and a-jour goldwork have minute 18 karat gold wires curving to exactly the same pattern in each segment between the perfectly matched coral cabochons. This leaves a mesh-like transparency so that the cloth it is worn on can shimmer through. The periphery of this wonderful brooch has a band of braided gold slightly polished to give it the perfect contrast. A wonderful piece of period jewelry and most wearable to any occasion. Stamped 18K on the back.
