Antique 14K Yellow Gold, Opal & Pearl Brooch, Art Nouveau, 585 Gold, Quatrefoil, Floral, Flower, Berries, Openwork, Enamel #b861
For offer today I have this spectacular antique Art Nouveau gold, opal and pearl floral brooch!

This gorgeous brooch is constructed of 585 yellow gold with a rosy tone (585 gold is the European equivalent to 14K gold). The brooch is openwork and its frame has a quatrefoil shape. The center of the brooch features a beautiful flower with a seed pearl center on one side and a stem with an enameled green leaf and three lovely opal "berries" on the other side. The opals have fabulous color and bring a beautiful fire to this superb piece. The brooch closes with an old style c clasp and the pin is attached with a tube hinge and extends slightly beyond the brooch, both of which are indicative of the piece's age. It is absolutely superb!

The brooch measures about 1 1/4 inches long, 7/8 inch wide and weighs 2.5 grams. It is hallmarked "585" and has some other symbol marks, which may be maker's marks, that could not be identified. The gold was also tested on a Tri Electronics gold and silver tester and tested as 14K. The opal stones measure about 2mm each, a total of 0.09 carat weight.  The stones were not tested.

This is a wonderful brooch! It would make a marvelous addition to an antique jewelry collection and an exquisite gift. The brooch is in excellent antique condition, with only the expected light surface scratches from previous use and wear. I gave the brooch a light polish, but it would really shine with a more extensive cleaning. It's an exceptional and beautiful piece of history that you can wear!
