Fresh from a Virginia estate is this petite and pretty pin in the form of a leaf made of 14K yellow gold and set at the base of the leaf with an oval cabochon emerald measuring 3/16" X 5/16" (4mm X 7mm for our overseas buyers). The detail on the leaf includes deeply engraved veining as well as lighter lined striations which give it a soft texturing and set off the deeper engraving as well as the stone. The leaf stem has a high-polish finish as does the back of the pin. It has a conventional safety clasp and pin mechanism in excellent working order. The pin as a whole measures 1 1/2" by 3/4" (4cm X 1.8cm) at its longest and widest points. It is in excellent, used, estate condition with no damage at all. It is also marked (see photo) "14K" on a small plate on the back as well as stamped 14K on the side of the safety clasp. This is a classic leaf design pin and could be worn in many ways from a jacket or blouse to a hatband or a beret decoration. Very pretty and feminine.
