A delightful and symbolic silver and 18ct yellow gold, natural pearl and diamond (1.85ct) brooch from the Victorian period. An old cut diamond set crescent moon shape forms the main body of the brooch, which is centred by a shamrock shaped motif defined by three round natural pearls. A diamond and pearl drop section catches the eye and adds interest. Jewellery featuring the slim crescent moon was incredibly popular during the Victorian period, as it was known to represent the feminine moon goddess. Three leaf shamrocks were also popular as symbols of good health, good luck, and happiness. Rich white pearls and sparkling diamonds were also often combined in jewellery from this period, with both gemstones perfectly complementing each other. Brooches were worn frequently during this period, with multiple examples often being pinned to the outline of a corset. The drop section moves with the wearer, with the small diamonds sparkling beautifully in the light. Silver has been used to set the pearls and diamonds, which has been expertly backed in yellow gold to ensure that tarnish would not mark the skin or expensive silks.
The Victorian era marked a time dedicated to religion and love. Common motifs in the jewellery of the time were birds, flowers and trees: symbolisms drawn from Nature.
