Antique Edwardian 10K Gold, Glass Pearl & Ruby Sweetheart Pin/Brooch
Welcome to ROBINS NEST MIDWEST! May I offer….
AGE: Catch is marked Pat 5-17-10
ITEM: A lovely rose gold watch pin/sweetheart pin featuring a small bird at the top left, perched upon an interesting design. With a ton of glass split pearls (and if I'm wrong in my description, they are genuine), the bird has a cab garnet eye at the top far right, a faceted ruby. The pin is definitely a sweetheart piece, most likely a gift from the husband-to-be to his new affianced. Simple c-catch at the back to hold the pin in place.
CONDITION: Very nice with no major problems. One of the prongs holding the ruby appears to have been clipped but the remaining 5 claws are holding the stone quite tightly. The ruby, in the area of the missing claw, has a slightly rough edge - only visible with a loupe (yes, I know, I'm really picky about my descriptions).
METAL CONTENT: 10K Gold
HALLMARKS: Just the catch is marked as above - metal has been gently acid tested for content.
SIZE: 1-1/16" wide x 1" high
WEIGHT: 3.1 grams
FINAL COMMENTS: A lovely brooch just too cute for words!
