A Whisper of History: Victorian Diamond Brooch

An exquisite Victorian brooch, originating from Belgium and crafted circa 1920, unites the era's penchant for ornamental richness with the subtle gleam of 25 rose cut diamonds set in 18k pink gold and silver. This piece, touched by the finesse of foil setting, reflects a period of artistic cross-cultural explorations and the dawning of styles such as the Arts and Crafts movement. Though the maker's mark remains a mystery, the piece's heritage is unmistakably rooted in the historical depths of Victorian jewellery artisanship.
