Fine, Victorian 9ct, 9k, 375 Gold, Huayruro seed, wedding bar brooch, tie pin, C1890
Antique, Victorian 9ct bar brooch featuring two red and black Huayruro seeds mounted on a gold bar.
This brooch was most likely worn at a wedding, as the Huayruro seeds are believed to bring good fortune.
Huayruro seeds are found in pods in the tall trees of the Peruvian rainforest. The red and black seeds are said to bring good fortune and abundance, while warding off negative energy. The mixture of black and red on the seeds is also said to bring balance.
Perfect for a bride on her wedding day, representing something old (and lucky)!
This rare brooch brooch is beautifully presented in a new black leatherette and velvet box as displayed.
