Antique 9k Yellow Gold Navette Brooch with Floral Embroidery
This Antique 9k Yellow Gold Navette Brooch is a classic piece of jewellery designed with exquisite craftsmanship. It is an elongated navette shaped brooch crafted with 9k yellow gold featuring an embroidered floral and fruit in a bowl, silk work design with red and pink thread as well as yellow gold thread on a cream background. There are gold snowflake designs all around the edges. The detailing on this brooch is exceptional and creates a striking, eye-catching look. Perfect for the jewellery connoisseur.
Perfect for Christmas, this looks like an antique tree shaped decoration in a gold bowl with glistening gold snowflakes falling. Exquisite.
The yellow/gold thread may be actual gold but is untested so selling as assumed gold coloured thread.
The original tube hinge is present but the clasp was replaced with a more modern roll over clasp for security. In addition, there is a safety chain attached.

This item is used/antique so it has been previously loved. As such, it will show the normal signs of wear in the form of scuffs to the surface or wearing of details. Any obvious issues will be expressly detailed but none of our jewellery will be in perfect showroom condition due to it being vintage of antique.
