Gorgeous ornate Victorian revival brooch handmade in fine 14K yellow gold displays nine mesmerizing Opal gems.

It has a hinged locking pin for ease of wearing. They are pictured as received from an American estate.

This Opal brooch is in the Etruscan revival style of the Victorian era, which began with the discovery of ancient jewellery in the Etruscan tombs just outside of Rome in about 1870-1885.

Famous jewellers started to create handmade beautiful pieces that were replications of the jewels that were discovered or inspired by this trend in fashion and due to its popularity, it led to a mass revival of the Etruscan style.

The opals are full of life in this piece and during this time would have come from Australia. They are surrounded by cannetille-style gold filigree.

Why choose vintage pieces?

When investing in vintage pieces, you're investing in something that will only grow in value, which you know is higher quality than fast-fashion products.

The pieces we sell are vintage, so they may present marks of the passage of time. Make sure you have a close look at the photos of each product. We try to capture them as accurately as possible. Colors may differ slightly. 

Sold as-is, please check photos carefully. Some items will display wear consistent with age and use. Gemstones have not been graded for colour and clarity and tested for clarity and colour enhancement unless stated otherwise.

As with any vintage items, pieces may have some signs of wear such as surface scratches, small chips, dings, or may have a patina that can easily be removed. Any medium to major damage such as cracked stones or dents will be noted in the description if known.

It is the buyers' responsibility to view each image and preview the item to determine the condition.
