This wonderful vintage Chinese nail guard pin is in gilt silver filigree and enamel set with coral and turquoise cabochon stones.

Originally worn to protect very long fingernails worn by the elite. Long nails demonstrated that you didn't have to do manual work. Most often worn ceremonially.

This brooch is beautifully decorated with blue and purple enamel as well as the coral and turquoise stones. The pin back fastens with a rollover safety catch.

It measures 2 1/4 inches long and 1/2 inch across at the widest point. It is in very good condition.

It tests for high grade silver. Very decorative to wear on a blouse or jacket.
