ART DECO 14K Gold, Rose Cut Diamond & Ruby Bar Pin
Welcome to ROBINS NEST MIDWEST! May I offer….
AGE: C.1920 or so
ITEM: A yellow gold bar pin set with caibre cut, square rubies and rose cut diamonds. While the diamonds are natural, the rubies may be synthetic, entirely period appropriate for the pin. Simple c-catch at the back to hold the pinstem in place.
CONDITION: The pin and rubies are perfect. With regard to the diamonds, I see 1 that has a rough spot near a prong - it might be a chip as it is not at all smooth - cannot be seen unless magnified with a loupe.
METAL CONTENT: 14K Gold
HALLMARKS: As is the norm with some older American jewelry, none. Metal was gently acid tested for content.
SIZE: Length is 2-11/16"; width is about 1/8".
WEIGHT: 3.4 grams
DIAMONDS and RUBIES: Diamonds number 10; rubies number 21. Diamonds measure about 2mm each (2 points). Rubies range from 1mm x 1mm to 2.5mm x 2.5mm. To the best of my ability, gemstone count is about 1/2CT TW (50 points). Rubies are perfectly matched - a hallmark of synthetic manufacture. The diamonds are fabulously white - I'd say D color and VS1 clarity.
FINAL COMMENTS: Absolutely gorgeous!
