18th C Spanish Colonial / Iberian Table-cut Emerald Cross Brooch

$3,450.00

  • Details
    This is a beautiful and rare 18th century Portuguese emerald brooch with pierced gold foliate. The table-cut emeralds are gorgeous - vibrant and clear. Likely sourced in the colonial mines in Peru and Columbia. The reverse is struck in several places with an unidentified mark, likely a Spanish town mark. This piece was possibly part of a brooch or bodice ornament as the locking c-clasp and tube hinge are not period correct, they date to approximately 1850-1890.

    The pendant is set with 37 table-cut emeralds, square and rectangular shapes. They range in size from 7 mm x 5 mm (largest) to 1 mm by 1 mm.



    Measurements: 43 mm x 43 mm

    Condition: A few of the smaller emeralds have tiny chips. This can only be seen under magnification and does not detract from the piece. There are a few restorations to the reverse.

    Weight: 10.9 grams

    Metal content: 15k yellow gold
