A beautiful piece of Victorian Period Jewelry. This antique 14k Love Knot brooch can also be worn as a pendant. It has a nice weight to it at 6.7 grams and can be enjoy by both the ladies or gentlemen. We date this piece to c1880-90.
This piece measures 1 1/8" and has a "c" catch closure. The gold is highly polished with no dings or dents. No marks on the brooch or closure pin but it has been safely tested and is guaranteed to be 14k gold. There is also a bale on the back so this can be worn on chain. The bale is small but an extra ring can be added to the bale to fit a larger chain. Any darker spots you see is light oxidation in the grooves of the gold from age. We only did a light hand polishing and it is gorgeous.
This would be lovely on a jacket lapel, coat, scarf even a hat. We love finding these early pieces of gold new homes.
