Vintage Italian 18K Gold, Diamond & Handpainted Portrait Miniature Pin/Pendant Combo
Welcome to ROBINS NEST MIDWEST! May I offer….
AGE: C.1950 or so
ITEM: From a trip to Italy, here's a wonderful high carat gold pin/pendant combo that was most likely a souvenir purchase on the Grand Tour! At the center of the setting is a portrait of a lady on celluloid with hand painted detailing. To add even more beauty to the piece, the addition of 2 Diamonds - 1 set as an earring and 1 set as a pendant - are worn by the lady. (NOTE: although I am unable to test the stones myself, this type of jewelry always used genuine diamonds as the accent stones.) Safety catch to hold the pin at the back as well as a large bale so that the piece can be worn on a thick or thin chain!
CONDITION: Excellent with no problems I can spot.
METAL CONTENT: 18K Gold
HALLMARKS: ITALY on the back of the pendant - 750 (18K) along with some other marks on the bale
SIZE: 1-9/16" x 1-1/4".
WEIGHT: A hefty 11.8 grams!
FINAL COMMENTS: Ready to wear!
