Please ignore the colour of the brooch in the photos, this is not a grey brooch, it is gleaming silver with fabulous diamond bright pastes, only under a 10x loup can the slightest touch of discoloration be seen to two or three of the smallest pastes, in the hand these are brilliant diamond white, going by the quality & brilliance of the central larger bezel set stone it could possibly be a zircon, for there is not a mark to it. The large central high crowned paste of aprox. 5mm is bezel set, all the other smaller pastes are invisibly bead set with no claws. A stunning rare original, unaltered in any way, solid silver antique brooch, & this is an absolute beauty. Going by the quality of the minute pastes I would hazard a guess that they may be French, & was clearly created by a master jeweler. I have never, in all my years of collecting paste silver jewellery seen a better or more beautiful example of a small floral brooch/ lace pin , even in daylight the pastes look like diamonds. There has been no repairs & none of the stones have been replaced, in sunlight it is impossible to look at it, for it is blinding & they appear to be diamonds , it is fabulous. Eautifully hand finished throughout. With lovely workmanship, as much care going into finishing off the back as to the front, & measures exactly 2.4m m (1) in diameter deep. & closes by way of a is strong tiny roll over closure. This is fit for the serious vintage jewellery collector. This does what it was intended to do, to replicate diamonds & looks simply astonishing under artificial light. (I recommend you measure against other brooches you own to give an idea as to the size). Vintage silver & paste brooch. Original Box / caja? No but I will find a box for you.
