Rare Authentic Medieval Gold Pin Brooch (ca.1350)
What do we see? Born as a cross, with a center stone that is either ruby or spinel and three remaining settings, most likely for the same type of stone as the center stone. Three remaining as it is obvious that there was a fourth setting. The little pins sticking out of the center, where most likely meant to keep pearls in its place. We can still see the rubbed ends of the pins, showing a sort of riveting technique. We also think the brooch has been in the ground for a long time, long enough to have the pearls solved.
It still has its original stick pin and closure. Just imagine when people ask you "What strange thing are you wearing?" and you can say that it's a piece that is some 800 years old! A piece with a true charisma!
