Four-leaf clovers became a popular symbol of luck in the 19th C as the Irish began to emigrate to Britain, bringing with them beliefs and blessings. The four-leaf clover represents good luck, success and prosperity for the wearer. This brooch is a three-leaf clover from the same era.
Studded with diamonds, side set with tourmaline and the most delightful all original locket back! It is extremely hard to find substantial, original 19th c rings with intact locket backs, and this gorgeous example from the 1840's is a textbook find.
