Description


This fine and impressive diamond brooch has been crafted in 9 ct yellow and white gold.


The brooch has been modelled in the form of the Royal Air Force cap badge; the central 9 ct white gold 'RAF' emblem mounted to a 9 ct yellow gold Queen's green enamel laurel wreath, flanked on either side by diamond set wings and ornamented with the Queen's red enamel and diamond crop to the upper border.


The 9 ct white gold feathered wings and crown are embellished with a total of fifty-three pavé set eight-cut diamonds.


The brooch secures to the reverse with a hinged pin and safety clasp.


The brooch is hallmarked to the reverse of the setting with the maker's mark 'J.W.B', the gold guarantee mark (crown), the 9 ct fineness mark (375), the Birmingham Assay Office hallmark (anchor) and the date letter for 1975 (A).


This vintage RAF sweetheart brooch is supplied with an independent diamond grading report card.


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.
