Star & Crescent Moon Spiritual Guidance Brooch In 15K Rose Gold Antique Victorian
With advancements in science & a burgeoning interest in astronomy in the late 19th century, the Victorians believed that crescent moons and stars symbolized spiritual guidance and celestial direction. They were used in jewellery to symbolize guidance and to help lead you in the direction you are meant to go. If this is true, this amazing 19th century brooch will be your compass into the ethereal! One imagines an imaginative & passionate Victorian socialite wearing this brooch while attending an intriguing and mysterious séance.
Seven petite seed pearls and three petite Persian turquoise are meticulously bezel set in this absolutely charming & whimsical piece set in 15K Victorian Rose gold. The Natural lustrous Seed Pearls compliment the Turquoise wonderfully and the pairing of these stones is very classic of the era. Turquoise is perhaps the oldest stone in man’s history, the talisman of kings, shamans, and warriors. It is a stone of protection and has been prized the symbol of wisdom, nobility and the power of immortality.
This is a stunning brooch, pregnant with romanticized English History, and would make a great addition to any collection.
NOTE: The pin on the brooch has been replaced and is the only portion that is not in gold (the hinge and clasp are in gold).
