Willis and Sons became one of Australia's most prolific and well know and respected jewellers of 19th and 20th Centuries, and here is a very elegant antique brooch that was hand made in 15 carat gold and set with a pink sapphire and European cut diamonds in the most beautiful design that is destined to always be admired. Both ruby and sapphire come from the same gem family, corundum, and the only difference between the two is colour. When corundum is any colour other than red, it is termed sapphire and when corundum has more chromium as a trace element, this will cause the stone to be more red, and then named ruby. When it is pink, it is hard to differentiate the difference between a ruby and pink sapphire, however most gemmological labs around the world agree that it comes down to the eye and how we see pink compared to red, and in this stone, it has such a delightful shade of pink that makes it so special and exciting. Measuring 0.75 carats, it is set surrounded by twelve European cut diamonds in a lovely cluster design. With a further thirty seven more diamonds set into the brooch, the diamonds come together to total an impressive 1.71 carats in the most beautiful and stylish design. There is no doubt that not only will the diamonds capture the eye, but so will the design of the brooch itself. Measuring 49.6mm across by 16.6mm, this is not only such an attractive brooch, but one that was made by one of Australia's most well know jewellers.
