I really love carbuncle/almandine garnets!
And paste antique jewellery!
And brooches!

So, when my path crossed this lovely thing... I had to buy it! :-D

The center is red glass, but the edges are (in my opinion!) almandine garnets.
The center setting is gold color (gold?), silver is unmarked.

I place it in 1860's era.

Length: 1.1/4" or 3.2cm
Height: 1.1/8" or 2.8cm
