Vintage ITALIAN 18K Gold, Diamond & HP 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; she wears silver earrings as well as a pendant - the pendant holding a small faceted diamond at the bottom. (NOTE: although I am unable to test the diamond myself, this type of jewelry always had genuine diamonds as the accent stones.) . Safety catch to hold the pin at the back as well as a large ORNATE bale so that the piece can be worn on a thick or thin chain!
CONDITION: Very nice. The back plate shows two dimples - love taps acquired through the years.
METAL CONTENT: 18K Gold
HALLMARKS: K18 ITALY on the back of the pendant
SIZE: From top of bale to bottom measures 2"; width is 1-1/4".
WEIGHT: 8.6 grams
FINAL COMMENTS: Ready to wear!
