This most delightful, heart pin tests as 9 carat gold with moonstones. I am dating it to circa 1900-1910.
It measures 1¼” (3.3cms) wide and 6mms down the heart. It weighs 1.3 grams.
The adorable pin has a heart shaped moonstone in the centre and a small round one on either side. They are mounted on a simple gold bar.
The ends of the bar curl around to the back , forming a sturdy pin which fits to the other end. It is an ingenious and more secure form of c clip.
In excellent antique condition, this sweet pin would make a lovely gift. It will arrive in a gift box.
