This is a gorgeous antique Victorian 15ct yellow gold bar brooch that has been professionally remodelled many years ago. The bar brooch is in typical Victorian style with crenellated edges, central diamond shape and raised floral decoration. Some years later the centre was enhanced with what appears to be the addition of the front half of an 18ct gold puffy heart locket, set with a natural garnet cabochon.
On the back of the bar a hole was created to allow light to get to the garnet. The resulting brooch is more attractive than the plainer original. The brooch fastens with an elongated pin on a tubular hinge, and a C clasp. It is also fitted with a small loop to allow a safety chain to be attached.
The brooch is stamped 15ct on the reverse and it and the addition have been tested. Measures approx 1.7 long.
