The bezel set purple glass is faceted so the color shimmers from light to dark with movement.
The jewel has a recessed darkened rim around it with a raised beaded edge, the ends form an open heart shape.
The pin has a subtle bow to it which suggests it was used as a sash ornament and worn vertically at the waist.

Excellent condition, no damage or visible wear.
