Beautiful Italian 18k Gold & Diamond Pin / Brooch
Presented is a beautiful 18 karat gold and diamond pin or brooch. This is an
Italian piece, likely made within the past 30 years. The pin is done in a
swirled ropetwist design, surrounding a comet or shooting star shape, with
dazzling diamonds set throughout. The ropetwist design has a bright finish,
while the rays and tails of the shooting star have an eye-catching brushed
finish. The largest diamond, set in the center of the star, is about 20 points
in size, of VS-1 clarity and I color. There are 22 additional diamonds scattered
throughout the pin, each at least 3 points in size, vibrant stones of VS or SI-1
clarity and I color. The diamonds are all modern brilliant cut stones, set in
white gold so they really pop. The total diamond weight is at least 86 points,
maybe as much a 1 carat. The brooch has a rollover style safety clasp.
The pin is in great condition. The diamonds are securely set and the prongs
are in good shape. The clasp functions well and closes securely. There are no
breaks and no repairs.
The pin is stamped 18k.
The pin is about 2 inches long.
This piece weighs 22.3 grams.
