Vintage turtle pin is a wonderful design by Winard.
There is much detailing, especially around the multi prong setting that holds the oval Nephrite jade cabochon stone in place.
The high prongs resemble the points of a crown encircling the jade.
Beneath these prongs is a lovely textured rope like border outlining the turtle's body. His legs are heavily textured and chased in a similar twisted or braided design. Fabulous detail.
Bottom is signed Winard 12K G.F. The `W' and `I" have a little gob of extra gold covering these letters, but it is definitely a Winard piece. And being a vintage piece, you can be assured that the gold content is higher than later pieces of gold filled jewelry. At least 1/20th is 12 karat gold.
Measures 1-1/2" x 1"
