Dress Studs

The picture shows what I have been told are dress sruds that belonged to my great granfather John Olson aka Jons Jacobsson when he lived in HK between 1860 to 1918.

Unfortunately a well meaning relative a long time ago had them mounted on this huge specially made brooch. I know the work was done in HK probably in the 1960s.

Such things are no longer worn but I wonder if the pattern or any other features which you can make out tell us anything about the man.

Any views or comments appreciated.
