This stunning, fine and impressive antique brooch has been crafted in 18ct yellow gold.
The oval shaped frame is ornamented to the centre with a stunning shell cameo depicting a female figure in profile, facing the left.
The shell panel is framed with a scrolling border, incorporating forty-eight fine and impressive pavé set round faceted cut rubies, totalling 0.72ct.
The cardinal points of the brooch are embellished with three individually collet set Old European cut diamonds, completing the design.
This Victorian cameo brooch secures to the reverse with a hinged pin and clasp fastening.
This antique ruby and diamond cameo brooch has been independently tested using state of the art technology (Niton XL2 Analyzer) and verified as 18 carat gold.
This stunning example of cameo jewellery is supplied with an IDGL diamond and gemstone grading report card.
Such brooches with this combination of gemstones are unusual to locate; this variation, in addition to the high graded diamonds, indicates the high quality of the piece.
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.
