14K & Silver Austrian Victorian Diamond & Ruby Lady Portrait Flower Brooch


A gorgeous Austrian Victorian c.1880-1890 portrait brooch, surrounded by a floral garland of diamonds and rubies and crafted in 14k gold and silver, hallmarked.

The brooch houses a finely painted portrait miniature of a lady behind glass, with ribbons in her hair and wearing a silk dress. The frame beautifully complements the portrait, with rose cut diamonds 0.70ct by spread, and rubies 0.35ct, in the form of a floral garland, with a total weight of approx. 1.05ctw.

It is hallmarked on the reverse of the brooch with "A", the town assay mark for 'Vienna', as well as a hallmark on the brooch catch and maker's mark on the brooch pin. The portrait brooch is in excellent condition and opens and closes well.

It measures 26mm x 28mm height, and weighs 6.35 grams.

Custom Project
We are able to offer a custom project to either convert this into a wearable pendant, or maintain it as a brooch and add a hidden bail so that it can be worn as a pendant-brooch. This would cost an additional $125. Downtime for completion is approximately 8 weeks. Please Contact Us if you would like us to arrange this for you.
