This vintage pin has a smooth 1.6 mm circular border with three off center textured leaves inside the open design. The largest of the leaves is nestled next to a prong-set oval cabochon opal with great play of color. The opal has blues, green, pinks and the very sought after red flashes which are more rare in opals. The shine of the textured 14 karat yellow gold leaves is a wonderful accent to the color effects of the opal.
The pin in marked "14K" on the back and tested as such. The opal measures approximately 7 mm x 5.5 mm, or 1/2 carat. The pin is 26 mm (1 1/8 inches) in diameter and weighs 2.2 grams. It is in excellent condition.
