Fine Italian 18K White & Yellow Gold and Diamond Running Horses Pin/Brooch
Regular price $1,368.00
Presented is a nice 18 karat gold brooch in the form of two running horses. This is a modern piece of jewelry, of Italian make. The bodies of the horses are done in yellow gold with a fine Florentine finish, appropriately reminiscent of fur. The horses' manes are done in white gold and set with diamonds. There are 12 total diamonds, all single cuts, of about 12 points total in weight. Overall it's an excellent piece of jewelry, well made and with loving attention to detail, very nicely proportioned. The back of the pin has a butterfly style safety clasp. The pin is in great condition. The details are crisp. The clasp and safety function well and close securely. There are no missing stones, no breaks, and no repairs. The back of the pin is stamped with Italian hallmarks, one reading '750' for 18 karat gold and one maker's mark which we do not recognize. The pin is approximately 2 1/8 inches long.
This piece weighs 11.6 grams.
