Antique Austro-Hungarian Turquoise Pearl Brooch Pin Silver

During the 1800s, jewelry makers of the Austro-Hungarian region established a reputation for superior craftsmanship and beautiful design. They created Renaissance Revival pieces, such as ornate earrings with shimmering paste, or highly detailed pendants with seed pearls. This resurgence of Renaissance design was most popular from the 1860s to 1910s. Pieces expressed richness of form, intricate details, experimental design, and the use of high quality paste, seed pearls, semi-precious gems, and of course, bright and bold precious stones.

This antique Austro-Hungarian turquoise silver brooch was handcrafted around 1890. A beautiful turquoise sits at the center of a mythical silver setting. It features a pearl drop, blue enamel details, and green and pink paste. This brooch pin measures 45 x 39.6 mm and it weighs 10.9 grams. It bears the silver fineness mark, “935”, indicating a slightly better purity than sterling which is 925.

Dragons are frequented throughout English heraldry, representing valor and protection. During the Victorian era, they were commonly associated with industry and mysterious faraway places.
