The moon's glamour and power is in full effect in this magickal red spinel brooch. While this brooch is shaped as a crescent moon, the total lunar eclipse often appears red and is called a blood or red moon. Historically, red spinels have often been mistaken for rubies, but there is no confusing these vibrant gems for ordinary rubies. Eleven oval spinels are set in a graduated curve of 15ct gold. Each gem sits in an open-backed, fancy cut-back collet. The horns are very pointed and highly polished. This brooch fastens with the c-clasp common during this era. This ethereal brooch will be a potent talisman for the right person ... you know who you are. Circa 1880.

Spinels are among the most famous gemstones, such as the Black Prince's Ruby, the "Timur Ruby" in the British Crown Jewels and the "Côte de Bretagne" of the French Crown jewels.

Details.....The brooch measures 2.57" by 0.26". In Very Good Antique Condition. Some wear should be expected on all vintage and antique pieces; we consider it to be part of their charm.
