Saturday Sparkle: The Partridge Opal Brooch, 1928

Opal Brooch
Fred Partridge
England, 1928
The Victoria & Albert Museum

Famed Twentieth-Century English jeweler Fred Partridge made this oval brooch in 1928. The enameled gold frame is set with an exceptional opal.

The brooch was made by Fred as a twenty-first birthday gift for his daughter, Joan. He engraved the reverse with Joan’s birth sign of Virgo. 

I wonder if there's any relation...
