This gorgeous hand crafted Victorian ribbon bow pin features a large 14k two tone (rose and yellow gold) engraved bow, and a shamrock clover accented by seed pearls. Measures 1-7/8" x 1-1/4". The details are fascinating, hand engraved designs on the ribbons of the bow, and the tiny pearls are all set in raised buttercup mountings. The tiny natural half seed pearls measures 2mm each, the one at the very top is slightly smaller, 1.5mm. No evidence that this was ever replaced, this looks like a design element. Really great quality multiple piece construction riveted from the center, early style hinge tube and c clasp construction with the extended pin stem. Typical of the majority of authentic Victorian jewels (particularly hand crafted pieces such as this), the brooch is not gold hallmarked, but it has been carefully tested to guarantee 14K content and quality. Weighs 4.7 grams. Circa late 1800's. In fabulous well babied condition.
