Antique 10 Karat Gold and Pearl Watch Pin Brooch

This is a lovely antique watch-pin rendered in beautiful 10 karat yellow gold. The fleur de lis-shaped pin is set with genuine lustrous seed pearls. It's the kind of piece that speaks of sophistication and old-world elegance.

The watch-pin is so called for the small loop on the reverse near the bottom.

The "C"-clasp pin would have been attached to a lady's jacket or dress and a watch chain (or small watch) would have then been attached to the small loop.

The fleur de lis has been a symbol of French royalty since the 12th century when it was adopted by King Clovis I. The symbol is a stylized play on the lily.

Throughout history, the fleur de lis has been used by hundreds of cultures the world over, though it continues to pervade as a French emblem.

Each of the pin's 38 seed pearls are original and remain in excellent condition.

There are two small maker's marks stamped on the reverse of the pin; the first reads "10K".

This is followed by a capital "K" inside a lozenge.

The front of the pin shows a bit of darkening commensurate with its age, but the pin remains in excellent antique condition overall.
