An awesome antique gold nugget bar pin beautifully crafted in 14k and featuring a 24k gold nugget.
The California gold rush inspired gold nugget jewelry to become popular during the years between 1848-1855.
The 24k nugget sits on base of double bars that have a very fine line texture, the ends have an ornamental double wrap of wire.
The pin findings are a C catch and a riveted tube pin stem which determined that the pin was made during the California gold rush time frame.
Measures 1.5" by 5/16", total weight is 4.4 grams.
Excellent condition, no damage or visible wear.
Unmarked, the nugget tested 24k and the bars 14k with acid.
A wonderful antique California gold rush pin with history.
