& measures a larger than normal 8.7. Mm x 4.9mm (3.4″x 2″) across the widest point is crafted out of solid 9ct gold & weighs between 15 -16 grams. I think the safety chain is gold plate. I have only once or twice in all my years of collecting vintage jewellery seen similar brooches of such quality, & rarely of this size, the detail is sublime & looks like it cost a kings ransom. There is only the one hallmark regards gold quality 9ct, sadly there are no other marks. I is encrusted with minute glistening translucent seed pearls & tiny bright rasberry hued Rubies, these all glimmer in the light thanks to being open backed, with a larger immaculate pearl to the center of the flower, this is quite simply a spectacular brooch. There are no repair marks, the pin also being as good as mint & believe the pin could also be gold. (I recommend you measure against other brooches you own to give an idea as to the size). Antique 9ct gold brooch. YES SI (though not original to the brooch).
