Victorian Gilded Amethyst Sash Brooch - Neil Zevnik - gold/purple
1880s Victorian large gilded sash brooch. This classic sash pin consists of a wide rippling band w/ embossed swirling designs surrounding an open center; suspended in the opening is a reverse-set open-back faceted amethyst crystal in a deep bezel setting, flanked by ornate symmetrical elements. The plating is astonishingly smooth and unblemished, and the amethyst stone is a rich color w/ intriguing faceting. An impeccable and elegant relic of a bygone age.
