This is a lovely pin designed for Swoboda by artist Nate Waxman. The pin takes the form of a flower with jeweled leaves. This was one of a group of samples I bought when the business closed many years ago. This pin measures 3" long by 2" high. The gold plated pin is a flower and branch of leaves set with emeralds on the leaves. The open flower is set with sapphires as is the branch. The center of the flower is set with rubies. The gem stones are not of fine jewelry quality. But as a costume jewelry pin, it is much like the real deal which was their purpose. All stones are present and the pin has a C closure with lock on the back. The condition is great. This pin would make a nice Valentines gift and comes in a gift box.
