The Brooch is a take on the Tara Brooch, you can read the History of the Tara Brooch here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tara_Brooch. It is a very ancient brooch, Solvar produced several styles with a take off the original brooch. Yours is their : Rhodium Stone Set Celtic Tara Brooch-Made in Ireland Solvar. $55.00.( new price ) Solvar Ltd. is a family owned Irish company established in 1941 and based in the heart of Dublin Ireland. I would list this for

$40.00.
