Mid 19th Century Victorian 14ct Gold, Rose Cut Diamond Large Floral
A spectacular large rose diamond brooch that was made in the early to
mid-nineteenth century. It is a floral spray and has been cleverly set with
graded and shaped rose cut diamonds in the forms of flowers with buds and
leaves. There is a push-pull or trombone catch on the reverse. The push-pull or
trombone catch was patented in Britain in 1850 and was used prior to 1890 in
British brooch designs, well before they became popular in the US.
