We'll be sending out sale notices and special deals to our'Favorites' customers. One of my favorite starburst brooches in my collection, this one is set with a diamond along with the swirls and star points of seed pearls. An Edwardian era mourning brooch, the star and diamond represent the heavens, and the seed pearls represent the tears of the mourner, as they did in Victorian times and earlier.We begin to see these starbursts in the late 1800s to very early 1900s, and this one is a dual-duty functional one - both a hinged bale to wear it as a necklace or a brooch back if you'd like to wear it as a brooch, bodicer, Or hook it over your most fabulous Mikimoto pearls, for instance, as an enhancer. I've used it that way. I've also clustered 5 of these of varying sizes and design along the lapel of an evening jacket - most recently a black velvet AKRIS one I particularly love.
They'll up-market anything, though. If you like the idea, look at that final image to see how pretty they can be in a group. I'd love to help you put your look together. Very good to excellent condition, complete and without bends, loss or damage. The pearls range from 1-2mm and are half-pearls as set.The diamond is slightly off round, is facet cut and is 3-4mm across, making it approximately a 1/5 carat stone. Very clear and brilliant, I do not have it graded. I've shown it with a chain, perhaps, but if so, chain is not included. We're easy to deal with. Our fine inventory is very important.
