  • Total Carat Weight: 13.88 ct
  • Precious Metal Weight: Approximately 2.25-2.50 dwt
  • Precious Metal Material: 10k rose gold with natural, deep patina
  • Dimensions: Overall, 23.56 mm long x 17.52 mm wide x 11.56 mm deep including pin
  • Weight: A very nicely weighted 5.52 grams
  • Markings: 10K
  • Era: Victorian or Victorian style; matches styles dating to the Gothic Revival years of the 1860s-1880s, though its construction techniques, design elements and fabrication match catalog references dating to between the 1890s and early years of the 1900s. Because this piece is stamped with 10K (“k” representing karat gold purity rather than the UK’s use of “ct” for the same purpose), and because of this closure type, we can estimate that the brooch dates to c.1900 and is American-made. However, without knowing an exact provenance, we cannot ascertain a more precise date range beyond what our years of collecting, dealing, learning and refining our expertise enables us to determine.
  • Buyer Notes: This piece is a wonderful example of late Victorian jewelry, and stands out on the market for the exquisite nature of the citrine’s color, carat weight, cut and clarity. Its mounting style is also unique, and adds both a fierceness and an elegance to the design. The piece shows areas of wear commensurate with the piece’s historic age and affectionate use, including tiny flea nibbles along the girdle in some areas which are not at all visible to the naked eye. As well, a soft “lightning bolt” shaped abrasion is present on the pavilion, which is the underside of the faceted stone. This imperfection is visible and is pictured, though is not apparent or noticeable when worn. The price has been set to represent its presence, as well as the unique Historic origins, and the superior beauty and make of the brooch’s design.

The Story:

Crafted with beautiful attention to detail, this turn of the century brooch features a superb, large oval cut natural citrine gemstone. This citrine is remarkably transparent, showing a bright and vivid lemon yellow hue that refracts light in a charming display of clarity. This stone is free from inclusions, and boasts a bold golden hue that complements its setting and lighting conditions; the gem appears to deepen as the light dims, and likewise appears to lighten as the light brightens. Its body is a candied yellow, a drop of sunshine, glistening and luminous.

This hefty oval citrine is mounted within a 27 count claw prong setting, which was en vogue from the last quarter of the 19th century through the end of the Edwardian era, and was seen as strikingly handsome, a rather architectural and confident approach to stone-setting. Indeed, this halo of talons audaciously grip the citrine and draw the eye around the stone as well as to the ornate profile of the setting. When viewed from the sides, the claw prongs give way to a sweeping reticulation of rose gold latticing which was designed to recall the crowns worn by kings and queens of history. The rose gold of the setting revels in a highly desirable ultra patinaed finish, which the piece has organically accrued over its 120 or so year life, and is considered by collectors a supreme trait of antique jewelry.

This pin exhibits a closure system that assists in dating the piece: on the receiving end, the manual locking mechanism matches patents from around 1895 in Europe and later US patents from around 1910, give or take. Because this piece is stamped with 10K (“k” representing karat gold purity rather than the UK’s use of “ct” for the same purpose), and because of this closure type, we can estimate that the brooch dates to c.1900 and is American-made. Its clasp is relatively tight as-is, though like all antique jewelry, ought to be double checked by a bench jeweler before consistent, everyday wear. As well, it would make a wonderful conversion pendant, and is a perfect scale to wear around the neck.
