This stunning Victorian revival jewel of indeterminate age is so striking and lush! There are many high quality gemstones involved within gold and silver setting in the fashion preferred by the Victorian jewelers as they usually set diamonds in silver settings and emeralds in gold.  This attests to how popular and timeless the jewels of the Victorian era are as they have been revived constantly by each generation as time goes on.

The shamrock form has been a consistent design element throughout history in areas where the clover is abundant.  Besides being thought to bring good luck, the ancient Druids wore shamrocks to ward off evil spirits. This version is a little swankier than what the Druids were wearing. 36 small diamonds surround three pear-shaped emeralds, with a beautiful sparkling brilliant diamond in the center. Wear this, and all the spirits will fly!
