Size: 1.25" wide x 1.5" tall, approx.
Victorian garnet brooch, c.1870. Oval setting, with ten pear-shaped points. The large stones are a deep red, and the small stones are more orange in colour. The brooch can also be worn as a pendant, thanks to the later addition of a pendant loop on the reverse. The mechanism folds away, so that it is not visible when worn as a brooch.
