Victorian Chrysoberyl Pearl Double Heart Brooch Pin

The heart is a symbol engrained in our society to mean friendship, love, and support. It’s an ancient symbol that stems from the shape of ivy and fig leaves, which traditionally represented fidelity. It was the Middle Ages that saw the heart motif begin to signify love, and, as it always does, fashion followed suit. The Victorians believed that two hearts, side by side, represented two people as bound together, typically bestowed as a betrothal gift.

This charming Victorian brooch was handcrafted around 1880 in England. It showcases two yellow-green heart shaped cabochon chrysoberyls surrounded by 44 creamy white pearls and topped with a bow, set in 18 karat gold. Each chrysoberyl measures 13 x 11 x 5 mm. Overall, this brooch pin measures 27.3 x 30 mm and it weighs 8.0 grams. The maker’s mark reads, “A&W” and it bears the gold purity hallmark, “18”.

My heart skipped a beat when I spotted this bright and sunny brooch. It’s a romantic piece that swept me off my feet and now all I want to do is sweep you off yours.
