Welcome to ROBINS NEST MIDWEST! May I offer….
AGE: C.1960 or so

CONDITION: Very nice! Silver is nice and bright due to a rhodium overlay no doubt. Pearls are extremely lustrous though there are minor blemishes. Nacre appears to be quite thick.
METAL CONTENT: Sterling Silver
HALLMARKS: SILVER - this mark usually indicated a Japanese manufacture rather than an American one.
SIZE: 1-1/2" x 1-3/8". Pearls measure 5mm.
