An elegant antique Victorian rose gold pin c1870-1880 set with a beautiful amethyst and seed pearls.
The gold is a rich 10k rose, the design is classic.
The faceted amethyst is a beautiful medium purple set in an open back multi prong setting so the light shines through.
The amethyst is framed with twisted wire with three beads on the north and south sides.
Three pearls are bead set in leaf shapes flanking the amethyst.
The amethyst sits on two round bars, two sides have fancy caps, the other two ends are cut at an angle.
The pin is very well made and displays beautifully when worn. On close inspection there are dings on the side and back of the bars. The old findings were replaced with a safety catch for security.
Measures 2" by .75", the amethyst is 15mm by 10mm, total weight is 7.3 grams.
Unmarked, the gold tested 10k with acid.
