A beautiful antique Edwardian bar brooch crafted in 9 carat gold hallmarked in Birmingham in 1907. At the heart of this stunning piece is a rectangular cut amethyst paste gemstone with rounded edges and a wonderful purple hue set horizontally in an east-west orientation. Surrounding the centre stone are a halo of round cut vibrant bottle green paste gems, their vivid colour contrasting perfectly against the centre stone. The gold has a wonderful rosey hue which adds to the brooch's allure evoking the romance and nostalgia of a bygone era. Paste is a special type of hand cut glass created to emulate gemstones. It was often used in Georgian, Victorian and Edwardian jewellery. This piece is in good vintage condition with some age related wear as pictured in the form of a couple of nibbles to the centre stone and some light wear to the green paste stones. The pin fastens securely for peace of mind whilst wearing. With its rare beauty and timeless elegance, this unique and rare brooch is true testament to the artistry and beauty of the Edwardian period.

Care Instructions

Chemicals and chlorine can damage jewellery. It is recommended that you remove it when using body care products, spraying perfume or hairspray, bathing, swimming and whilst doing housework.

Settings and stones can be damaged by accidentally striking the hand against a hard surface. It is best to remove rings when carrying out any manual work or gardening.

To clean your jewellery use tepid water and a few drops of mild soap, a soft jewellery brush or cloth.

Extra care should be taken with opal, turquoise and pearl as these are porous so soaking should be avoided.  To clean wipe with a damp soft cloth and avoid extreme changes in temperature.
