A seed pearl set star burst brooch/pendant, comprising a central star burst motif within a scrolled surround, set throughout with graduated half seed pearls, mount stamped ‘15ct’, diameter 24.5mm. £100-150

The half seed pearls are all present and correct and are fairly well matched. There is some discolouration to the metal around the central half pearl, possibly this is a replacement, or has been affected by the changes to the fittings to the reverse. The brooch fitting is a later addition/replacement. There is also a hinged pendant fitting (no bale) which is a later addition/replacement and a central screw mount for a detachable brooch/slide fitting (lacking), which may also be a later addition/replacement.
