Presented is a high Victorian, 14 karat deep yellow gold brooch or pin made in America during the 1850s-70s. This piece is done in the Etruscan Revival style of the times. There are gold balls decorating the edge of the piece and a wonderful band of granulated wire design on the top of the pin. The center has a raised, riveted piece of gold that turns freely but is securely attached through the center. There is a glass and bezel locket on the back of the piece to hold a lock of hair or a photograph. There is a small hoop at the top of the pin so it can be hung as a pendant. 

This piece has been tested with nitric acid and is guaranteed to be 14 karat gold purity. 

This piece is in excellent overall condition. There has been a tiny solder repair to one of the ball decorations on the edge of the piece and a small split along a back edge but the repair and split are not visible when looked directly
at the pin from the front. There are no other flaws or repairs. 

The pin measures 1 5/8 inches in diameter and weighs 11.9 grams.
