Antique 18K Victorian Brooch Pendant with Amethyst Drops, Lattice of Pearls, and Applied Blue Enamel Decoration. This beautiful piece features many Victorian elements and flourishes, a lattice field set with 10 cultured seed pearls, each 2 mm in diameter. This pierced center is framed by three ornate shells decorated with stripes of baby blue enamel. And the entire piece is framed with a ruffled border with three floral accents. Suspended from the lower edge of the brooch are three teardrop faceted amethysts set in plain bezels.
Unmarked as to metal content, there is a script engraving of "June 6, 1895" on the back of two ruffles. The brooch is finished with a safety stem with roll-over safety and a hinged bale for wear on a necklace chain as a pendant. The piece is in very good vintage condition, with expected wear for its age. One pearl is a replacement and stands up above the post. The Amethyst drops may have been added to customize the brooch.
