This gold quartz pin is beautifully designed with fine lined details and hand engraved accents. Note the fine diagonal lines in the grip and the pattern work in the guard of the sword. Also in the crown you will find leaf like designs on it's outer sides as well as a fine dot and rope like pattern at it's base. The designer then accented the guard and crown with four diamonds as well as the main focal point of the two high polished rectangles of gold quartz.
The gold is in excellent condition with no cracks, rips, dents, holes, deep scratches, abrasions or repairs. The pin hinge and pin stick are originals, the locking clasp is a replacement. We don't consider replacements of clasps as a repair but as a necessary security measure. The pin stick is fairly straight and has an excellent point. The 4 European cut diamonds all appear to be the originals and total 33 points. The gold quartz is definitely original to the pin and both pieces are well seated in their mountings. The piece of quartz on the right has either some cracks or natural fissures at it's top left area.
The pin has no makers or gold content marks as is often common on quartz jewelry. Rich has acid tested and will guarantee a minimum of 14Kt. The pin measures 3" long and stands 13/16" tall from the bottom of the guard to the bead on the top of the left quartz. A very attractive quartz pin for a collection or to wear.
