Here is a very lovely and attractive antique rose and green gold brooch made in 1889 that will always be admired for its elegance and charm. Rose gold is produced by adding copper to the gold as a main alloy resulting in a lovely warm colour that is as popular today s when it was made. Whereas many modern rose gold pieces are very pink, antique rose gold has that soft colour that is so desired and appreciated. And then this brooch is highlighted with the much rarer green gold. Green gold has a very soft hue to it and in this brooch is used perfectly to highlight the leaves that form the pattern for this brooch. This delicate and subtle use of green gold really adds a wonderful contrast and highlights the design perfectly. Green gold was used in the late Victorian period when this brooch was made for only a relatively short period of time and is more popular now than ever before. Measuring 3cm in diameter, this is one of those brooches that will look so good during the day and well into the evening and always be such a magnificent talking point.
