May I offer….
AGE: C.1950 or so
ITEM: A retro silver pin featuring a large amethyst paste and a few faux pearls (glue set). Safety catch at the back to hold the pin in place.
CONDITION: Very nice with just a touch of tarnish still on the pin (when found, it was completely black). There is a touch of movement in the stone but it is definitely securely set. The silver surrounding the pearls still shows tarnish and it gives the effect of the piece being lightly antiqued.
METAL CONTENT: Sterling Silver
HALLMARKS: STERLING on an applied disc to the back.
SIZE: 1-3/4" x 1-1/8"
WEIGHT: 7 grams
FINAL COMMENTS: An interesting design, don't you think?
