Gold filigree brooch

This gold filigree brooch set with a large citrine and small emeralds and rubies was presented to Jane Morris as a gift from her husband William Morris. 

This brooch is among the number of jewels that she bequeathed to the V&A. Many of the others were gifts from her celebrity acquaintances including Rossetti himself.
