Here’s an incredibly beautiful antique Georgian citrine and emerald cannetille filigree brooch in 20k yellow gold!
This amazing handmade brooch is in pristine condition, as if it's spent the past 200+ years safely preserved in a box. It features at its center a large (approximately 10.9 carat) oval-faceted yellow citrine with a slightly convex top facet. Four beautiful flowers sit at its N-S-E-W coordinates, each with an emerald at its center. Two emeralds are rectangular and cut with asscher faceting; two are square and emerald-cut and have an estimated total carat weight of 0.42 TCW.
We date this amazing 20k brooch to around 1820, in the Georgian Period. The body of the brooch is a fine three-dimensional masterpiece of cannetille filigree with curves, beads, cones, milgrain, "lacework", all in bright yellow gold. The brooch unmarked and acid tests at around 20K gold (the gold doesn't with 18k test solution and slowly and partially dissolves with 22k solution).
Its reverse features its original pin closure with c-clasp and tube hinge, with excellent tension on the pin. Two curved hooks could enable it to be worn on a chain as a pendant, and three small rings along the bottom edge suggest there may have been additional dangling drop elements, or perhaps these rings were included to enable the wearer to add drops if desired.
