Retro 14k Gold Hand Carved Jade Pearl Ruby Butterfly Moth Pin Brooch
Presented is a fabulous vintage 14 karat yellow gold, jade, pearl and ruby pin. This piece dates to around the 1930s-1950s and was likely made in Hong Kong. The pin is made in the form of an elegant butterfly, with finely hand carved jade pieces set in the wings, pearls for the body, and rubies for the eyes. A very charming and attractive piece.
This pin is in great overall condition. The jade pieces are well set, with no chips, though one piece has a line visible in the back which may be a hairline crack, but this does not go all the way through to the front side. The clasp functions well and closes securely.
The pin measures about 2 ¼ by 1 1/2 inches, LxW.
This piece weighs 11.9 grams.
