I live in a catholic country so I find a lot of catholic jewelry when I m treasure hunting. In this country we have a long history of worshipping the virgin Mary. On every street corner there are chapels to honor her.
I found this brooch some years ago. I liked the design and although I usually dont buy religious jewelry this brooch charmed me. I recently found some other lovely religious jewelry pieces so this brooch started it all.
It has a c-clasp and a tube hinch and I would date it around 1850. I did test it with an acid test and its 9 carat 'gold'. (Where I live everything less than 14c is not categorised as gold).
I hope you like it.
