Antique Australian 15ct Yellow Gold Celestial ‘Starburst’ Circa 1900

Collections: Sold Archive

Large in her proportions this 3.5cm (4.5cm with bale!) diameter Celestial starburst combination brooch and pendant was crafted in Australia around the turn of the last century circa 1900.

Crafted from bright and lush 15ct yellow gold and set with an array of natural half Pearls which are all original, white to creamy white and lustrous.

The Starburst is tiered, 3 dimensional and hefty in weight at 8.03 grams. 
With original Pearl set bale which is wider than usually seen and will accommodate quite a substantial chain.

Wear this one as a brooch when the mood takes your fancy or pop her on your favourite chain!

Hallmarked with what we believe to be early Australian hallmarks however we cannot (as yet) find this maker in the literature.
