Presenting an antique Victorian 10K Gold brooch featuring fifteen salmon coral buttons and beads creating a floral spray with diminutive floral accents, each containing natural seed pearls. The coral stones are in flawless condition; the long pinandclassic open “C” claspin very good condition with just a slight bend in the pin which does not affect it’sfunctionality. Although the brooch is unstamped (a very common practice for the period) the brooch has tested positive as 10K gold.

Since Roman times, people have believed that coral jewelry would protect children by warding off evil and danger. Therefore, coral beads were commonly presented as Christening gifts and coral jewelry became a mainstay in Victorian jewelry.
