Antique Victorian 15K Gold & Natural Pearl Jubilee Pin for QUEEN VICTORIA!
Welcome to ROBINS NEST MIDWEST! May I offer….
AGE: C.1887 or 1897 - one or the other
ITEM: A yellow gold pin from Great Britain/United Kingdom set with natural seed pearls and bearing a Crown at the center and the initial V at one end and R at the other. They represent the phrase "Victoria Regina" - Victoria Queen. Simple c-catch at the back to hold the pinstem in place.
CONDITION: Excellent with a slight darkening to the gold indicating an antique nature. Gold only tarnishes after 100 years of age!
METAL CONTENT: Scratched in mark of LC (L = 50; C = 100 in Roman numbers) on the side of the pin. The pin acid tests to 14K though because of the historical nature of the piece and the standard gold carat of high quality Victorian jewelry in the UK, the piece is more than likely 15K/15CT.
HALLMARKS: None - metal was lightly acid tested for content.
SIZE: 1-9/16" x 3/8".
WEIGHT: A hefty 4 grams.
FINAL COMMENTS: Collecting jubilee pins of Queen Victoria is a passion to all those that love the beloved Monarch. Brooches of gold are the most valued as only the very rich could afford to show their patriotism with the precious metal. This piece is a particular beauty!
