$1,750.00


Description

DATE: Victorian, c.1880

A lovely antique celestial brooch, with two domes of dark blue guilloché enamel, that shows hues of light blue when it catches the light. A lovely representation of the dark night sky, which the Victorians loved. The sky's mysterious nature intrigued the Victorians, and it represented the realm of dreams, magic, and the hidden aspects of life. Moon motifs were used to bring a sense of wonder and to encourage the wearer to explore their imagination and embrace the unknown. This brooch is set with a rose cut diamond crescent moon and two stars, with gold settings and a ropework pin. Crafted in 15k gold throughout, it dates from the Victorian period, circa 1880.
