This is a gorgeous Lab Created Spinel Gold Vermeil Brooch that has gorgeous Filigree work throughout. This brooch is a classic brooch that has that Victorian Styling, but is more than likely made around the 1950s timeframe. So very feminine and delicate, it is just beautiful!!

The brooch has one center stone that tests out as a Spinel Gem, however because the edges are not very sharp, I believe that this is a Lab Created Spinel. The color of the Spinel gem is interesting. In different lights, the gem will have different color hues to it. As you see the pictures, the gem looks like a brown Topaz Gem, very pretty… but if you take it out of the light, you will see hues of indigo and purple, similar to an Iolite stone. I’ve even seen this gem look like an olive green stone… very interesting, because it does change color. The gem is held in place with a crown prong setting that does add some richness to the brooch.

The Gold Filigree work is beautiful with scrolls, mini flowers, gold dots and caviar beading. You just could not ask for more. Just wonderful!

• Size of the brooch is 2 inches from west to east and 1 ¼ of an inch from north to south
• Condition is Excellent – just wonderful, no gold loss, gem is clean
• Gem measures 18mm by 13.5mm
• Hallmarks are “STERLING” and “R” and “DANECRAFT” - markings date this item after 1945, more than likely circa 1950s.
