Hammer Price:
£550

A pearl and rose-cut diamond circular snowflake brooch, late 19th/early 20th century, the polished gold star panel centred with a gypsy set rose-cut diamond, to a millegrained scroll border highlighted with seed pearls and square set rose-cut diamonds, yellow gold mount, pin and clasp bearing owl mark, possibly the French gold mark for imported items from 1893 onwards, diameter 27.5mm. £400-500

All the stones are present and correct and the pearls are reasonably well matched. The mount shows light surface wear only, but the construction is cruder and heavier than typical for French or English pieces of this period. Gross weight 9gm.
