Presented is a lovely Victorian 14 karat gold and aquamarine pin or brooch. This piece is probably of American make. The pin is done in beautiful scrolls and swirls, with lovely hand engraved designs. The brooch is set with three oval cut aquamarines. The topmost aquamarine is about 3.22 carat, while the two below are each about 4.22 carat in size. Attached at either side of the pin are three gold chains, adding an element of movement to the piece. The back of the pin has a memorial lock of hair behind a round glass. This piece is 14 karat gold, nitric acid tested and guaranteed. The pin is in good overall condition. As the photo points out, there is a missing gold piece beside the topmost aquamarine. The aquamarines are securely set. The clasp has been replaced at some point. There are no breaks and no repairs. The pin is about 2 1/8 inches wide by 1 7/8 inches long. This piece weighs 17.2 grams.
