15Kt Gold Pin c1900 Spinels Topaz Crescent Moon Forget-Me-Not
Jewelry ~ no matter how small, offers the giver or wearer the chance to tell his or her story ~ no matter how big. This piece represents a big story, a serious sentiment. The pin is in the shape of a crescent moon. It was an old tradition for the groom to present his bride with a crescent moon piece of jewelry upon the time of their departure for their honeymoon. The thing that makes me love this particular pin so much is the fact that the designer has entwined a forget me not into the lines of the moon. The pin is solid 15kt gold and is so marked. It's also hallmarked on the pin shaft, but the marks are rubbed and I can't make them out. Maybe you can. The rich yellow gold of the pin is accented by sparkling little gemsstones ~ red spinels and blue spinels and white topaz sparklers. In perfect condition, save for the pin shaft which is a bit bendy but works perfectly. 1 7/8"L X about 1/4" wide. The pin retains its original c-clasp and also the tiny loop that once held the security chain. Free USA shipping, handling and insurance.
