ANTIQUE VICTORIAN 14K Gold, Rose Cut Diamond, Turquoise & Natural Pearl Sweetheart Pin/Brooch!
Welcome to ROBINS NEST MIDWEST! May I offer….
AGE: C.1890 or so
ITEM: Presented by a gentleman to his "lady friend" or possibly given as an engagement present, this Antique Victorian sweetheart pin feature a small heart set at the center bordered by two florals. Set with Persian Turquoise cabs and natural pearls, the centers of the two florals each hold a rose cut diamond (tested). Simple c-catch at the back to hold the pinstem in place.
CONDITION: Excellent. The brooch has an 18K gold bloom on it making it appear far richer in gold content than it is.
METAL CONTENT: 14K Gold
HALLMARKS: None that I can find. Gold has been acid tested for content.
SIZE: 1-3/4" from pearl end to pearl end x 3/8" at the center
WEIGHT: 3 grams
FINAL COMMENTS: The pin was pretty much black when I found it so I had to polish it as best I could. While the front is pretty clean, the back still shows a bit of tarnish. But, the patina simply shows that this piece is old and not something new.
