Antique Victorian 14K Gold & Natural Seed Pearl Pin/Pendant
Welcome to ROBINS NEST MIDWEST! May I offer….
AGE: C.1890 or so
ITEM: A rose gold starburst pin/pendant studded with natural seed pearls. With lots of "rays", there are no pearls missing nor do there appear to have been any replacements. Back catch is a simple "C" closure and the bale is a nice "swivel up, swivel down" finding. There is also a small jump ring at the back so that a "guard" could be attached.
METAL CONTENT: 14K Gold
HALLMARKS: 14K at the bottom of the back of the piece
SIZE: 1-1/4" high/wide. Pin has a slight outward curve so depth is about 5/16". Largest pearl at the center is 3.2mm.
FINAL COMMENTS: Did you know that any antique piece of jewelry with natural pearls is a much "undervalued" item? One of these days, we poor dealers are going to wish we had bought every single one that crossed out paths. I'm sure some designer name is going to come up with some idea regarding their use and then, poof!, no more starburst pins!
An elegant design still worn by Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II - Long May She Reign!
