A very beautiful antique Chinese filigree brooch with bezel set tourmaline and jade gemstones. This piece dates from the late 1800s to early 1900s. It is approximately 2 inches long and 1.5 inches high and has a safety clasp. When first made. this brooch was likely bright silver but it has now oxidized to a dark tone. Tourmalines have recently risen sharply in price and all indications are that they will continue to do so due to high demand. There are now imitation "hydro tourmalines" flooding the market so it is even more special to find real stones in an antique piece of jewelry. Brooches make a great gift because there are no sizing worries.
