Antique Victorian Edwardian18k Russian Enamel Diamond Ruby Flower Basket Brooch Pin
This is from the estate of a Washington DC woman who had amazing taste in jewelry and wore her cache to society and political events. Antique Edwardian or Victorian 18k gold flower basket brooch with diamonds and rubies. The blue enamel flower is articulated and has 18 rose cut diamonds, 11 faceted rubies and 2 ruby baguettes centered around a lovely engraved flower pot with flowers and leaves. The brooch is unmarked but was tested by a jeweler at 18k. It has white and yellow gold and is even lovelier in hand than the photos show. Not sure if this is Russian or French but it is a wonderful addition to any collection. Measures 1 3/4" high by over 1 1/2" wide and is in excellent condition with a tiny bit of enamel loss only - approximately 13.1 grams. Shipping by Express Mail mail fully insured. PHOTOS do not do this justice.
