A charming antique Victorian sterling sentiment pin embellished with rose and yellow gold.
The pin has a sweet sentiment "Best Wishes" in raised rose gold letters. A dimensional anchor in 10k rose gold signified hope, the small flowers in rose and yellow gold represented love and friendship.
The rose and yellow gold appliques add a great addition of color to the sterling pin.
The anchor and flowers have engraved surface detail, the silver surface also has fine engraved decorative details.
The outside rim has three hollow beads on each side.
Measures 1&7/8" by 7/8", total weight is 5 grams.
Marked with English hallmarks an anchor for Birmingham, lion for sterling standard and a small 'a' date letter mark for 1900. There is also a makers mark S Bros for Sydenham Brothers.
Excellent condition with minor wear- the anchor has a ding at the bottom near the point, the backs of some of the hollow beads show wear, neither are a distraction. The C catch was replaced with a locking safety catch, the pin stem is the hinged tube style.
A fine example of a Victorian romantic period message pin with a lovely sentiment.
