A lovely and sophisticated brooch... This very well made brooch has 12 cultured Blue and gray Akoya pearls. They range from 6 mm's - 7 mm's in size. Some are blue and some have a blue/grey hue with purple overtones. It is hallmarked Caribe with a P inside of an impressed Diamond shape. It is also hallmarked 950, a very high silver standard.
The piece was beautifully made and you can really feel the quality in your hand. The bench jeweler hand etched the leaves around the pearls and the brooch is a simulated spray of flowers with a ribbon at the end.
It measures 2" x 1 1/4". It weighs 12 grams.
The pin is perfect, straight and has a locking C clasp.

Pristine Condition with no apologies to be made.
I've not handled Tahitian or Blue pearls before but these are just wonderful and what a switch from your everyday white or cream colored pearls. This will look fabulous on a simple black sweater or dress it up with that little black dress. Another unusual piece which I happen to really like. Questions are always welcome and encouraged.
