Found today on a fresh cut pasture with Garrett 300i South Oxon Berkshire borders, gave a good signal of 83 when buried and 87 once out. Jewlery setting sensitvity down 1 notch approx 4 inches deep.
Im sure its a copper alloy brooch, you can see where the pin used to attach, also seems to me remains of a turquise stone plus a gap for at least one other. Ive googled and browsed but i can come up with any sort of date for it.
Thanks in advance

Could be Victorian - look at love knot brooches, and see how a lot have that leaf shaped end to the metal twist.
Although originally gold looking, they were often made from pinchbeck, which would explain the decay / poor metal colouring.
