An unexpected french buy on EBay!

As seen on pics #2 and #3, it had two dangling pendants, and lacking central pearls.
Beautiful gold mount and bright green vitreous enamel!

I'm not used to dismantle jewellery in good condition, but for this one, I thought the dangles would make perfect earrings. Plus the fact they were not "in mirror" (aka not opposite symetrical, but identical) was not very gracious, decided me to remove them and replace with an antique gold and diamond set cap holding a GILSON opal (synthetic)!

Replaced too the lacking 3 bottom pearls plus a tiny one on the left, which was also lacking.

It was sold as gold metal, and yepee! Got it in one day :-)

Size is 1.3/4" long by 1" wide for the brooch now.
1" long, 3/8 wide for the dangles.
