It’s such a shame that Old King Edward didn’t live that long after he was crowned. I mean, the world was just figuring stuff out. Stuff we think he would have like to see. Like how to work gold into lovely, delicate filigree shapes and how to mimic natural stones by creating synthetic ones – that could fetch almost as much hard-earned cash as the real thing. This pretty brooch was created during his short reign.
What We Love About It: The ever-so-delicate filigree work is a great place to start. We love the scrolling and the intricacy of the workmanship. The pretty little diamond and sapphires aren’t anything to fuss at either.
The Deets: modeled in 9K white gold, the Edwardian filigree long diamond brooch has open scrollwork designs and features one single cut diamond, measuring 2.0 mm and set in a hexagonal frame with milgrain detailing. The diamond is SI2 in clarity and H-I in color with a total carat weight of 0.03cts and is surrounded by four triangle cut simulated sapphires (measuring 2.0 mm x 2.0 mm). There are also 2 prong-set pearls measuring 2.2 mm each.
We think this could be the perfect old, borrowed and blue for a bride. Thanks, Old King Eddy!
