Retro 14K Gold, Sapphire & Moonstone Floral Brooch
An elegant Retro 14K yellow gold floral brooch, the flower head set with a ring of blue sapphires surrounding a cabochon moonstone. This classic combination of moonstone and sapphire was very popular in Retro jewelry, probably because the color of sapphires brings out the blue undertones of moonstone. The quality of the stones is very fine. The sapphires are a bright cornflower blue, and the moonstone has very good adularescence. The back is marked 14K.

Origin: America, ca. 1940. Condition: excellent, all original. Size: 2-3/8 x 1-1/8. Weight: 13.0 grams. Approximate Total Gemstone Weight: moonstone, .88 carat; sapphire, .43 carat.

PLEASE NOTE: We are offering the matching earrings as Item #586684.
