Victorian 10K Rose Gold Pietra Dura Pansy Button
Framed in unmarked 10K rose gold, this Victorian button features a Pietra Dura purple and white Pansy and leaves with dark lavender bud on a black background. Measuring 1 1/4" in diameter, it is a round button, probably designed as a mourning piece to be worn at the neck. The back button portion measures 1/2" in diameter and is all gold. There are no markings as to content, but the button has been tested by a jeweler. A stunning antique to be treasured, this is in lovely condition. In Victorian times, pansies symbolized love and memories and were a common motif in jewelry.
