Brooches like this very rare and solidly crafted piece of jewellery made of Whitby jet were worn as mourning jewellery in 19th century England. This fashion trend was inspired by Queen Victoria’s life long mourning for her beloved husband Prince Albert. The sentimentality of this epoch made this opaquely brilliant jewellery an especially popular accessory and even today this unusual material has not lost its attraction and splendour. The brilliant expression of this brooch is underlined by the facetted centre piece.

The brooch mechanism has been replaced. Despite its attractive size of 60 mm the brooch is well wearable due to the light weight of this extraordinary material.

We will provide a certificate for this collector’s item.
