18K Victorian Diamond Crescent Star Brooch
An outstanding Victorian c.1890-1900 crescent star brooch crafted in 18k gold and set with rose cut diamonds.
This is a highly impressive piece on numerous counts. It is set with rose cut diamonds approx. 14.21ctw by spread. Each and every diamond is chunky and highly domed, and not a single diamond is flat which results in a crazy immense sparkle from every angle.
The diamonds are closed back and foiled. The foils are clear and bright with no damage to the foils, and the diamonds are of great quality.
In addition, many of the diamonds in this brooch has unique shapes, they are not all uniformly round, which truly adds to the uniqueness of this piece! It can be seen that the piece has been entirely handcrafted as the setting is specifically crafted to the unique shape of each diamond.
It was sourced from Switzerland, and is likely Ottoman Empire in origin.
A star rests in the inner crescent, with the tips of the star touching the inner crescent from end to end, giving it a very important and stunning presence.
The brooch is in excellent condition, with all original parts present with no modifications nor replacements. The brooch pin and opens and closes well.
It measures an extra large 46.5mm across, which is a very impressive size in addition to all the diamonds it has! The average crescent measures around 26mm to 38mm across. It weighs a solid 35.14 grams.
This is a truly unique and heirloom worthy piece that will be a solid staple to any crescent and star lover's collection, and we are truly honoured to be able to offer this piece in its excellent condition.
