Sapphire & Diamond Crescent Shape 9ct Antique Brooch

by Brereton Jewellers

A sapphire and diamond crescent brooch from circa 1880. This Victorian era brooch has an estimated 2.70ct of sapphires and 0.15ct of diamonds. The 17 graduated round cut sapphires are all gem quality with a fantastic brightness that indicates they were most likely mined in Sri Lanka. The 16 diamonds are a mixture of rose cut and old cut diamonds. A clear indicator that the brooch is from the 1800’s is the use of silver as the white metal in which the stones are set, later pieces would use platinum or white gold.

Brereton Jewellers

Brereton Jewellers was established in 1916 at 108 Capel Street, Dublin. Specialising in both new and antique jewellery the business has grown with the city of Dublin. John's youngest son Jack joined the business in the 1930's. By the early 1970's the third generation of Breretons, Jack's sons John and Liam, joined the company.

Shortly afterwards they opened the company's second store on Chatham Street, Dublin. The third store, opposite the General Post Office (GPO) on Dublin's O'Connell Street, opened in 1986.

Starting in 2003 the fourth generation joined the family business. Paul Brereton joined in 2003 and Derek Brereton started in 2009. Paul graduated as a gemologist from the Gemological Institute of America in 2006. Both of them now works closely with the the third generation in the running of the three unique stores.
