0.29ct Diamond and Ruby, Platinum Regimental Brooch - Vintage Circa 1960


An impressive vintage 0.29 carat diamond and 0.02 carat ruby, platinum 'Salamanca eagle' military brooch; part of our diverse diamond jewellery and estate jewelry collections

SKU C2447

This fine and impressive vintage diamond brooch has been crafted in platinum.

The brooch has been modelled in the form of the Salamanca eagle*.

The engraved body, wings and head of the eagle are embellished with a total of fifty-pavé set diamonds in a combination of transitional modern brilliant round and eight-cuts.

The eagle's eye is represented by a round cut ruby.

The foot of the eagle is ornamented with a enamel decorated plaque, accented with the number '62'.

The 1960s brooch secures to the reverse with a hinged pin and clasp fastening.

This vintage regimental brooch has been independently tested using state of the art technology (Niton XL2 Analyzer) and verified as platinum.

The brooch is supplied with an independent diamond grading report card.

NOTE * The Salamanca eagle was a Napoleonic standard that was stolen by the Essex Regiment during the battle of Salamanca. The Essex Regiment has now amalgamated into the Royal Anglian regiment, and is now worn as the sleeve badge in honour.

Images do not always reflect the true colour and brilliance of gemstones and diamonds. The video however provides a truer representation of the actual colour and showcases each stone.

This impressive vintage gemstone sweetheart brooch is exceptional quality set with impressive rubies and very high colour graded, very well colour matched diamonds displaying a fine white colour and brilliance.

The brooch is an exceptional gauge of platinum and is in excellent condition.

Reflections in photographs may detract from the true representation of this fine example of military related jewellery/estate jewelry.
