Antique jewelry Victorian rose cut diamonds brooch

OBJECT GROUP : brooches
COUNTRY OF ORIGIN : Although it does not carry any legible control marks we believe it is of Belgian origin.
STYLE : Victorian
PERIOD : 1880
SOURCE OF INSPIRATION :
MATERIAL : 18k yellow gold and silver, see also: The silver on gold technique
TECHNIQUE : Silver on gold. This technique finds its origin centuries ago, when jewelers believed that only a silver mounting could render the true beauty of a diamond. Backing the silver jewel with a (thin) layer of gold was a practical precaution taken to avoid the silver jewelry leaving black stains on clothing or skin. Over the years, with the recognition (and thus use) of platinum as precious metal and the development of white gold the practical necessity to use bi-colored material became obsolete. The argument to use bi-colored metals became more an estetic then a practical one.
DIAMONDS : 17 rose cut diamonds. We do not have the weight of the diamonds which is normal in our trade when it comes to rose cuts.
WEIGHT : 13.90 gram (8.94 dwt)
HALLMARKS : No trace
CONDITION : Excellent condition - (click here for our condition scale)
MEASUREMENTS : Height approx. 3.82 cm (1.50 inch); width approx. 2.88 cm (1.13 inch)
