SKU C8392

This fine and impressive antique diamond brooch has been crafted in 18ct yellow gold with a silver setting.


The brooch has been modelled in the form of the Gordon Highlanders cap badge*.


The three-dimensional stag's head is embelished with twenty-nine pavé set Dutch cut diamonds


The eyes of the stag are represented with two pavé set cabochon cut rubies.


The stag's head issues out of a coronet ornamented with five further Dutch cut diamonds, in addition to alternating three cabochon cut rubies and two cabochon cut green sapphires to the band, all pavé set.


This impressive crest design is encompassed with a layered leaf decorated border, accented with green hot enamel.


The lower portion of the brooch bears a blue enamel scroll bearing the contracted motto 'Bydand'**, completing the design.


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


This impressive cap badge/sweetheart brooch has been independently tested using state of the art technology (Niton XL2 Analyzer) and verified as 18 carat gold and silver.


This impressive Gordon Highlanders brooch with diamonds is supplied with an IDGL diamond and gemstone grading report card.


Such three-dimensional brooches are becoming increasingly difficult to locate.


NOTES: * The heraldic crest of the Gordon Highlanders is classically depicted as 'issuant from a crest coronet a stag's head affront©e, attired with ten tines'. The Clan Gordon is a Highland Scottish clan which is historically one of the most powerful in Scotland; currently seated at Aboyne Castle, Aberdeenshire.

** Bydand is a contraction of the Scots phrase 'Bide and Fecht' - Stay and Fight.


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 antique regimental brooch is excellent quality, set with impressive rubies and green sapphires displaying fine colour and brilliance.

The high colour graded diamonds display a fine white colour and brilliance.

The brooch is an excellent gauge of gold and silver and is in excellent condition.


Reflections in photographs may detract from the true representation of this impressive example of antique brooches.
