A Victorian half pearl and cat's eye chrysoberyl crescent brooch, circa 1890
Sold for £120
A Victorian half pearl and cat's eye chrysoberyl crescent brooch, circa 1890, set with graduating half pearls and cabochon cat's eye chrysoberyls, 3cm long; and a further early 20th century crescent brooch, set with seed pearls, stamped Fix, 2.5cm long
The half pearl and chrysoberyl brooch is in our opinion gold, but is unmarked, there is a later soldered on hoop to the back. There is a replaced pearl. there is a little bit of bending to the brooch clasp and a few scrapes, but still in working order. Some tarnishing, and some general surface wear to setting.
The seed pearl brooch is not gold, the mark Fix indicates rolled gold. There is some tarnishing to the setting, and some light surface wear.
