9ct Gold Arts and Crafts Opal and Pearl Leaf Brooch
Dating back to the early 1900s, this gold Arts and Crafts brooch from antique purveyor Kojis is set with a single iridescent opal and a pair of lustrous pearls.
Crafted from solid 9 carat gold, this brooch has a whiplash wirework design with an oval cut opal cabochon at the centre and two sculptural leaf motifs at either side. A petite seed pearl sits at the top, while a caged baroque pearl drop charm dangles freely from the base. Signed by pioneering Arts and Crafts company Murrle Bennett & Co., wear it alone to shine a spotlight on the one-of-a-kind design, or team it with several other artfully designed brooches and pins for a maximalist take on traditional formalwear.
