This 2 15/16" tall x 1 1/8" at widest point pin is a lovely design & not the standard circle or oval shape we normally see from Jensen. Please excuse the tilt on the pin. It is not bent-the French clasp is causing it to tilt in the photo.The top of the stylized flower has it's original collar mounted sterling "pearl" with no disruption to the collar. The pin was made to hold various gems or in it's more affordable format what is called a sterling "pearl". All sterling is in excellent condition with no rips, dents, holes, missing pieces, deep scratches or repairs. The lower approx 3/8" of the flower stem have what appear to be a few minute, approx 1/64" shallow pits in the casting. You can see them with the right angle of pin from about 12" away. Evidently the die/mold had a little residue in it & was due to be cleaned. The French style clasp, hinge & pin stick all appear to be original & are in good working order. The pin point is just a hair dull but I had no problem getting it into my fabric for the photos. The marks are on the backside of the pin. If you love Jensen jewelry but don't like or are tired of the standard shapes this pin is a must have.
