    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

      A stunning piece! I love garnets, too!
    29. Ms.CrystalShip Ms.CrystalShip, 11 months ago
      I loved but never commented....
      What a beauty. Garnet is January’s birthstone, wish I was born in January, Ha!
      Look at that focal stone! Huge Garnet cabochon!
      This has to be close to a century old, right? ( trombone hinge)
      I love, love, love it!
    30. Ms.CrystalShip Ms.CrystalShip, 11 months ago
      Oh wow, I just caught the date 1860’s!!
    31. Ms.CrystalShip Ms.CrystalShip, 11 months ago
      I should read the story behind pieces, but I got so excited over this one.
      Why would they put glass as the focal and then garnets around?
      I zoomed in, and studied and the stones all look the same to me,
      Oh well, gorgeous antique brooch Pascale!
    32. kyratango kyratango, 11 months ago
      Oohh, Eileen! Thank you so much for your enthousiasm and taking the time to leave such a kind comment :-)
      Yes, very old, the tube hinge combined with the C clasp gives the mid 19th era, plus the style and construction.
      The center cab is obviously deep red glass while the surrounding stones have the distinctive pinkish purple red color of almandine garnets (but could be glass too, my cheap gem tester can't say...).
      I have the luck to be very sensitive to the different tones of a same color, that help for stones id or mixing colors for matching remains in my kyratisations ;-D
    33. Ms.CrystalShip Ms.CrystalShip, 10 months ago
      I wish I could love this over and over again!
    34. kyratango kyratango, 10 months ago
      :-D thanks Eileen!
