Victorian 14K Gold Diamond & Pearl Star Shaped Pendant Brooch

A stunning star-shaped brooch-pendant featuring 72 seed pearls of various sizes and a central rose cut diamond. A series of small pearls have been set in the 16 radiating arms of this 14 karat yellow gold star shaped brooch. The pearls are filled to the edges, as if it was a blooming flower, a curling sea anemone, or celestial vision.
This brooch is a real antique treasure. The bale on the back folds in and out, as most elegant brooch-pendant pieces were made this way. The attention to detail is a real marvel as is the design of this piece; each pearl has been hand-placed, bead set to create the undulating effect. Small pearls decorate the star in a radiating fashion the range in size from 1.5mm to 3mm. The rose cut diamond in the center is prong set and 3mm in diameter.
The star brooch-pendant measures approximately 1 3/8 inch in diameter and 1/2inch in depth and weighs 6.67 grams. Circa 1890s. In great condition. Marked 14K on the back with unknown hallmarks.
During the late Victorian era we see feminine and natural motifs juxtaposed with luminous gemstones and celestial designs. We see gorgeous and unique pieces such as this one, of superior craftsmanship and sublime precision.
