DATE: Victorian, c.1890

An exceptional Victorian celestial brooch crafted as a shooting star and crescent moon entwined. Dating from the 1890s, it's set with sapphires, natural pearls, and old cut diamonds, the latter set in beautifully worked silver settings. The crescent is wonderfully slender, evoking the magic of the newest visible moon, and set with a row of graduated diamonds, while the shooting star features three curved knife-edge trails, each one furnished with three of the aforementioned gemstones. Crafted in 15 karat gold and silver, it looks just as good worn vertically or horizontally.
