Here's a genuine Art Nouveau pin or brooch in the form of a lady's head with flowing hair. It is 1 1/8" across by 1 1/8" high at the widest parts. On the back it is marked "sterling". It has a hook on the back for a watch - this was often added on to a pin in this period around 1900, and can be used to hang a little locket or pendant as well.
The pin is in very good shape. It was done with a hollow construction which makes it right for the period. Any coloring that looks dark on the pin is either oxidation or a reflection from the camera, and nothing wrong with the piece.
This pretty lady would do nicely for any pretty lady on your list.
