It is intricate and dainty with a wonderful design on the front.
The pin has a classic, simple shape with long sides and a round medallion in the center.
Each side is accented with a beautiful swirling motif in black and white enamel.

You will find a stamped mark on the reverse of the brooch which reads "Sterling Top".
The front of the brooch is sterling while the back is made up of oxidized brass.
A classic "C"-clasp on the reverse will let you wear or display the piece with ease.
