A Peranakan Brooch
This brooch was found in a shop at Jonker's Street in Melaka. It was just a frame without any stones but the frame was in good condition. I was told by the shop owner that it was silver and plated in gold. I kept it for years, before getting someone to set it for me. I was very grateful to CC who was willing to find the stones and set it. The brooch is now set with faceted rhodolite. The brooch is in fact brass and gold plated. I love this brooch. It could have been part of a kerosang.
