A classic Victorian bar pin beautifully handcrafted in 14k rose gold with yellow gold accents.
The pin has a delicate, simple filigree design, the yellow gold repousse leaves are textured, they clearly show the beginning influence of Art Nouveau design in the graceful swirl.
It is embellished with two seed pearls and four square turquoise in the center-I love the use of both green and blue turquoise to create a checkerboard effect.
The seed pearls are set in crimped tube settings, the four natural turquoise are set together in a box-bezel, a center dot of gold serves as an anchor for all four stones.
The outer edge of the bar has small beads soldered along it, the ends have arrowheads.
Measures 2&1/8" by 5/8", total weight is 4.8 grams.
Unmarked, it tested 14k with acid.
Excellent condition, no damage and minimal wear, the old C catch was replaced with a gold safety catch, the original riveted pin stem is not gold, the patina is lovely.
A charming handcrafted antique Victorian bar pin c1870-80s.
