SKU: BR153
£1,450.00Price

A beautiful Victorian diamond knot brooch.

 

The brooch is set with 19 old cut diamonds in a stylised rope knotted in the style of a Stafford knot.

 

The Stafford knot, more commonly known as the Staffordshire knot, is the traditional symbol of the English county of Staffordshire and of its county town, Stafford.  The Stafford knot's origins pre-date the Norman and Medieval period and are traced to either a heraldic symbol of early Mercia or a Celtic Christian symbol brought to Staffordshire by missionary monks from Lindisfarne.  The design also closely matches the early design of the pretzel, which was made to represent arms crossed in prayer. 

 

This beautiful brooch is simply mounted in silver and gold typical of the Victorian era and has a gold sprung pin to the reverse.

 

The brooch could be converted into a pendant if required.
