We are pleased to offer a Paua Sterling Silver Leaf Pin Brooch Made in Mexico.
This gorgeous pin has a leaf shape with silver veins and inlaid paua shell. Paua is a form of abalone and it is only found off the coast of New Zealand. It is distinctive with darker, richer colors and black demarcation lines in the pattern, giving it a gorgeous contrast against the silver setting.
The colors in this piece include greens, blues, pinks, purples and golds. The paua has wonderful iridescence that shines and reflects the light beautifully! It has a rollover clasp. We have more Mexican sterling silver and abalone jewelry in our shop, so check our other listings to save by combining postage.
It is marked, but the mark is partially illegible. We can determine that it includes "Heche en Mexico; AL 0.925". It measures almost 2 1/4" long and 1 1/4" across.
Condition: it has a tiny nick in one paua piece at the end of a `vein', where two pieces of shell meet and it can be seen in our first picture, at about 1 o'clock; clasp works.
This is a wonderful pin that would look great with jeans as well as evening wear or a business wardrobe. Don't miss out on this one! We are always offering a nice selection of jewelry and other vintage goodies, so please take a look through our shop. We would be pleased to combine shipping on multiple purchases.
Thank you for shopping with Cousins Antiques!
