Victorian Garnet and Diamond Brooch. Photo Lang Antiques

A rare and darkly romantic, impressively proportioned, Victorian cabochon garnet brooch embroidered all around with twinkling rose-cut diamonds set in silver atop a yellow gold bezel mounting with Fleur-de-lys style prongs. The garnet cabochon, which is convex’d on the bottom to emit a translucent glow, measures approximately 1 and 1/2 inch wide by inch high, and displays a rich port wine body color. Price: $9,750.00
