Vintage Pearl Heart Pin of Beautiful Seed Pearls on 14K Yellow Gold Setting
Unmistakable quality here.
An abiding indicator of the quality of an item is its basic construction. Did the designer or fabricator skimp on precious metals, or gemstones? Clues abound.
So let's look at this gorgeous Pearl Pin. On the underside is the foundation for the Cultured Pearls. The designer could have put a single wire with pegs to hold the Pearls. But no. This was designed to have two rows of Gold Layers, with supporting structure in between. And the Pearls. Just beautiful. Small Cultured Seed Pearls, but of excellent quality. This Pin measures approximately 36mm x 25mm. A goodly size. There are 27 Pearls in total, with an average measure of 3.25mm each. This Pin has a weight of 4.2 grams.
And remember, Pearl is the Birthstone for June!
