Late Victorian 3 Dimensional 10K Yellow Gold Starburst ~ Pinwheel ~ Flower pin has 12 flowing/curved tendril or petal - like arms. Unlike most I have owned.... these are "cut open". The entire piece is a RICH yellow gold color which looks more like 14K or 18K to me... even from the back side of the pin. Early 1900's Gold & Diamond jewelry also has a Folding/Hideaway Pendant Bail on the reverse enabling you to hang it from a pendant chain to wear as a necklace.
The FOCAL Point of this dramatic gold pin is the SPARKLING Genuine ~ 10 Point (1/10th Carat) Older Cut Diamond (not really round or oval... more cushion-cut) set in a 6 Prong buttercup style mounting. ANTIQUE gold brooch MEASURES just over 1 Inch in Diameter & surprisingly is unmarked on its EARLY Thumb Latch Safety Clasp. It has been professionally acid tested without filing and I GUARANTEE it to be 10K Gold - from its appearance I thought it would be 14K.
It is Quite Substantial for its size ... NOT thin or tinny. Authentic Victorian Gold Jewelry is in VERY FINE CONDITION! Has not been cleaned ~ polished recently and is completely original - direct from a Fulton County NY estate. Don't miss the chance to add this BEAUTIFUL piece of turn of the century diamond jewelry to your Victorian gold pin ~ brooch or pendant collection - SUPER gift idea for Man or Woman!
