New to my collection is this adorable little Ruby, Diamond and Sapphire fly brooch. Unfortunately the previous owners had repaired it with 2 brilliant cut diamonds and 1 single cut instead of trying to find diamonds more compatible. 2 diamond chips are still missing. I know that the gem stones are ruby and sapphire but have not had them tested to see if they are synthetic or not. I'm now debating if I should have them replaced with diamonds more like the original ones or leave the brooch as is.
Also would anyone know what era this clasp is from and what country ?
The lady I bought it from her ancestors were from England, and the gold tests for 14k, there are no hallmarks to be found on the brooch.
I would appreciate any information.
Many thanks ahead of time.
