An absolutely stunning Masonic item, this 14k yellow gold fez pin features an open back ruby gemstone topped with the Shriner's emblem in white gold. At the side of the hat is a black enameled tassel that ends in a sparkling diamond.
The stones have been tested with a Presidium Gem tester and both the ruby and diamond are genuine. The ruby is likely a lab created gem - a process in practice for over 100 years.
The back of the gold piece is stamped 14k. It also carries an unknown maker's mark.
The tie tack style pin measures over 3/8" high x over 1/2" wide.
Near excellent condition. Some rubbing to the high spots on the applied emblem. The pin stem is not perfectly straight. No pin back. It needs a bit of cleaning.
