Edwardian 18ct Gold, Pearl & Diamond Heart Shaped Brooch

Sold

768G

A lovely gentle heart shaped brooch with a large pearl in the centre. It has been very well made with a millegrained edge and set with diamonds. The millegrain (French word for a thousand, and grain referring to the beads) technique was developed in the late 19th century as a textural effect to metal. It is defined as a technique where a knurling or a millegrain tool is impressed into a metal edge leaving furrows and also beads or tiny ridges of metal.
