Victorian BOHEMIAN GARNET Star Crescent MOON Brooch Pin Rose Cut Antique Estate
Another beauty from the collection of Bohemian garnet pins and pendants I picked up recently. This celestial brooch/pin features an 8 pointed star and crescent moon. The Victorians were wild for symbolism and the 8 pointed star was thought to signify new beginnings. The crescent moon was thought to guide the feminine spiritual side while stars were there to point direction for the corporeal body. Stars and moons were very popular motifs for Victorians, and Bohemian garnets adorn quite a bit of Victorian jewelry. This pin is just about perfect! I love the combination of flat and rose cut garnets in this piece The star contains circular flat cuts abour 4mm in diameter, but the rest of ste stone sare rose cuts ranging in size from 3-2mm. The piece is 33mm long by 27mm wide. The metal is not gold-- it may be a rolled gold or gold fill. The pin tests as silver but not sterling. Under magnification the stones look great with only a few showing very minor wear.
The simple hook closure on the pin is secure. This beauty weighs 4.7 grams.
