Antique Victorian Onyx Gold Filled or 9K Seed Pearl Leaf Brooch Pin
Antique Victorian Onyx Gold Filled or 9K Seed Pearl Leaf Brooch Pin is a beautiful antique mourning pin with an adorable leaf and seed pearl set on what I believe to be beveled onyx. More than likely the pin is a lower karat gold, or at the very least gold filled. The original clasp is so unique and must be the precursor to the rolling c clasp. There is a very small catch clasp that secures the pin stem. The perfect pin to add to your Victorian mourning jewelry collection. To inspect photos, simply click on the binocular icon on the top right corner of any photo.
Excellent condition, upon very close examination, there are a few tiny flea bites to the edge of the oynx that are visible. The pin measures 1 1/2" tall and 1" wide. This is a wonderful mourning piece to accessorize your wardrobe or add to your collection. (C-06-24-16-#1)

This jewelry comes from a dear friend and a truly exceptional lady. While having an antique shop, she has collected these fine designer pieces for the last 40 years and has an incredibly discerning eye for quality as well as unique and special pieces. The extensive nature of her collection has meant that she has not worn most pieces more than once.
It is my distinct pleasure that she has chosen to pass her extensive collection on to me. I know that I will be keeping some special pieces for myself and will also be offering many pieces in store as well. Please know that with each piece comes a wonderful legacy of a very special lady that makes this jewelry all the more special.
