The pin measures 7/8" square, total weight is 2.1 grams.

Excellent condition with very minor enamel loss, looks great to the eye.

*The honeymoon pin was a wedding custom in which a new groom presented his bride with a pin that was symbolic of their union. The crescent symbolized the 'moon' and flowers that symbolized nectar- the 'honey' portion of the word.

These small pins were known as "lace pins" and were not just ornamental, they were used to hold something in place-to confine a length of lace at the neckline or at the throat, sometimes to attach drapery at the shoulder. They often had sentimental meaning, and frequently classified as sentimental jewelry. The forget-me-not in this pin is a perfect example.

This small beauty has delicate forget-me-nots enameled in light blue and white with raised gold leaves on a distinctly textured background.

Very well made and in excellent condition, no damage or visible wear.

Measures 7/8" in diameter, it has the old style safety clasp that works in reverse.

Marked 14k on the catch, total weight is 2.3 grams. There is a hallmark above the karat mark
