Large Vintage Sterling Fancy Colored Topaz Brooch Pin
This is a stunning vintage darkened sterling silver brooch pin. To me, the design of the pin looks like graceful angel’s wings. The fancy colored topaz is a purple color and looks almost like an amethyst. There are no hallmarks, but tests as sterling silver. The topaz is a bezel set pear-shaped stone 16 mm x 12 mm. The stone is approximately 8.5 carats. According to my research the stone itself is worth approximately $500. There are minor scratches from wear. The brooch is in excellent vintage condition. I have not cleaned it, leaving the cleaning to the new owner especially since the darkened silver look is now in vogue.
