Cute Vintage Retro Costume Sterling Silver Red Gem Bird Pin
The body of the bird is set with a giant, bright red gemstone, clearly a synthetic, and the tail feathers are set with over 60 one to two point rhinestones. The legs are engraved with textured detail and the body is in a glossy, gold wash finish.
This piece is marked sterling on the reverse. It is almost certainly American and probably from the 1940s or 50s.
This fabulous piece of jewelry is in excellent condition. The C style butterfly clasp is tight and has a safety latch. Only one of the rhinestones is discolored. There are no missing stones, no dents, no breaks, no splits and no repairs.
The bird measures 3 1/8 inches tall, very large.
