Vintage 14K Gold Amethyst & Rhodolite Garnet Crab Brooch Pin
Vintage 14K Amethyst & Garnet Crab Brooch Pin
What fun! This finely detailed estate brooch depicts a happy little crab with an amethyst cab body and rhodolite garnet eyes. It is handmade and dates to the 1950s or 1960s. The brooch measures 1-5/8 inches wide by 1-1/8 inches tall. The bezel-set amethyst cabochon is approximately 19mm x 14mm and is estimated to be 14 carats. It has a strong purple color and does have some whispy inclusions. The crab's eyes are bezel set with faceted rhodolite garnets. Marked 14K on the back of one of the claws. Weight is 8.8 grams or 5.65 dwt.
Its condition is very good. There is a tiny fleabite on the cabochon at the bottom right (less than 1mm and not noticeable) which may actually be a natural blemish, and a slight bend in the pin stem.
Gender: Male, Age Group: Adult, Color: Gold/Purple, Size: 1.625
