A diamond paste double crescent bar brooch produced during the Victorian era (19-1837) in the 1901th century.

Crescent mounts seven paste stones on a gradual, all claw-set with small claws.With a round stone in the center, it looks like two moons containing stars and is very romantic.

Diamond paste stones are made by mixing powdered precious stones with powder such as glass, reforming them, heating them with high-pitched sound, and then applying facets.Such technology pioneered costume jewelery and served as an imitation stone to replace expensive precious stones.,With the George Dynasty (1714-1830)ヴ ィ ク ト リ アIt became popular in the morning (1837-1901).

There are signs of wear commensurate with antique use. (The dullness of the paste stone, the patina of the metal part on the back side (discoloration of blue-green)), but it is not a level that spoils the appearance and atmosphere when worn.For those who love old things, it is a wonderful condition that will attract the maturity over time as expected.

The simple manufacturing process that shows that the brooch is handmade can be seen everywhere, and I feel very attached to it.The author's personality can be glimpsed in the accuracy of the nail clasp, the slight distortion of the metal pedestal, and the unevenness of the welded part.

In paste glass, if the amount of lead contained is large, stones may oxidize and turn black over time, but this brooch is well preserved and the stones shine well.Also, the fastener C clasp is stable and the needle is perfectly straight.I hope you will continue to use it for a long time.

Bar brooches can also be used in mannish style.You can wear it vertically on the collar of the jacket or lay it on the chest of the knit.
