Regular price $1,008.00
Presented is a very attractive, 18 karat gold, silver, diamond and natural pearl bar pin. This piece is most likely American in origin and is definitely Victorian, made between the 1850s and the 1870s. This old piece is 18 karat gold and the darker top part is silver. We have left the dark patina of the silver to show the age of the piece, but it can easily be polished up to a high finish if you wish. The top is set with 4 natural pearls, 5 large diamonds and 30 smaller diamonds. The center diamond is approximately 20 to 25 points in size, then 2 are approximately 16 points and 2 are approximately 12 points. There is about 60 to 75 points in total diamond carat weight in this pin. The diamonds are around SI clarity and F-G color. The pin has its original C style clasp. This piece has been tested with nitric acid and is guaranteed to be 18 karat gold purity with a silver top. This piece is in excellent overall condition, especially for its age. There are no missing stones, no damages and no repairs. The pin measures 2 5/8 inches long and weighs 10.4 grams.
