An impressive piece of 19th century French jewelry with 3 large lapis lazuli spheres suspended in a triangular formation. Sturdily built in 18K yellow gold with a very clever spring-loaded safety mechanism to protect the pin. In the 19th century, brooches like these were worn at the center of dresses, functioning more like a pendant.
