This fine and impressive vintage vintage pendant/brooch has been crafted in 9ct yellow gold, replicating the details of a Victorian example.

The pierced decorated setting is ornamented with three feature claw set oval cabochon cut opals, in a trefoil style design.

The centre of this arrangement is embellished with a claw set 0.02ct transitional modern brilliant round cut diamond to the centre.

This versatile piece of jewellery can also be worn as a pendant, suspended from an 18" 9ct yellow gold chain via a hinged bale to the reverse of the brooch.

This impressive vintage opal pendant/brooch is hallmarked to the reverse with the maker's mark (HBJ), the gold guarantee mark (crown), 9ct gold fineness mark (375), the London Assay Office hallmark (leopard's head) and the date letter for 1986 (M), in addition to the gold guarantee mark (crown) and 9ct gold fineness mark (375) to the pin.

This vintage brooch is supplied with an IDGL diamond and gemstone grading report card.

The diamond displays a fine white colour and brilliance.

The pendant brooch is an excellent gauge of gold and is in excellent condition, with clear hallmarks to the reverse of the setting and pin.
