Exquisite Victorian Gold-fill Brooch/Pendant with Monogram
Isn’t she stunning? I couldn’t stop smiling when I first saw her in all her ornate Victorian over-the-top detail.
Circa 1900, this lovely piece was originally a watch pin. The bale at the bottom would hold a pocket watch that was then pinned onto a lapel, waistcoats or bodice. All the components work perfectly and offer lots of versatility.
But I’ve turned her on her head to attach her to a necklace—and she looks fabulous worn that way. The engraving, swags and embellishments are so typical of the drama of Victorian jewelry. This lovely example is American, so she’s trying a bit harder to outdo her British counterparts.
As far as I can make out under a magnifying glass, the scripted monogram is “MSL”. Or WST if you wear her as a pendant 😉
The gold fill is in excellent condition—as you can see in the wonderful rich patina.
I’d suggest adding her to a shorter chain so she gets to show off. A nice centerpiece to a neck mess of long and short necklaces. She’d enjoy the company of pearls or more gold. See my pictures for an example.

For my Antik by SPJ collection, I take great care to find special antique jewelry pieces and components that are of exceptional quality. However, they do show gentle signs of their age and history. And they deserve to be treated with care and love.
Each piece is unique and tells its own story, and unless noted, cannot be altered.
