Antique Australian 15ct Rose Gold Diamond Pink Spinel Crescent Brooch Circa 1900
The Goldsmiths’ Hall Co. was first recorded in Pugh’s Almanac, published in 1885. Their premises are in Queen Street Brisbane where they traded as watchmakers and jewellers.
Between 1893 to 1879 they were also listed in the western Queensland town of Dalby, presumably this listing relating to mine activities in the region. In 1896 the company registered an unusual gold brooch in the form of a round-nosed shovel with a jewel in the centre.
Originally this would have been Opal (see Queensland Reg No. 117 of 26 March 1896). The brooch bears the carat mark and ‘three diamond symbol’ which is assigned to the Goldsmiths Hall Co.
At the close of the Victorian era the Goldsmiths’ Hall Co. were well established as manufacturing jewellers and the firm continued to trade at 210 Queen Street Brisbane until 1902.
