A splendid Georgian brooch from around 1740, rendered in silver with an 18K gold clasp, showcases the grandeur favoured by the noblesse. It features sixty rose-cut diamonds, each meticulously set upon foil—a testament to the period's high craftsmanship standards. The drop pearl at its centre is a subtle nod to the dignified elegance of the era's well-to-do. Though its precise lineage is unknown, the brooch's opulence hints at a past steeped in grace and affluence.
