Relisted due to incomplete layaway. For your consideration is this huge genuine amber pin. The amber in this piece is awesome - honey in color with nice translucency. It is surrounded by an intense gold setting. We took this into Smyth Jewelers for a verbal assessment. It had already passed testing for me but I wanted their opinion on the mark and had them look at the amber also. They had it in the back for a long time and were quite impressed with the amber. They stated the gold was a hair over 8 Kt which would be marked 333 and that is what the 353 mark indicates. The pin has an old hook closure.
The pin measures 3 and 3/8 inches by 2 and 1/8 inches!!
The condition is excellent. The pin back is fully functional. The only thing I noticed was a few dots of discoloration in the back of the amber as shown but I am not sure if this is cleanable or part of the amber as I would not want to try and clean this fine specimen.
