Edwardian Rhodolite & Faux Seed Pearl Bar Pin in 18K Gold
This is an original, antique bar pin from the Edwardian Era, circa 1901-1915.
The pin features one (1) rose cut rhodolite garnet set in a ten prong basket setting. The garnet is a lovely purplish-red hue. It measures 8.77 x 7.53 x 3.89mm.
Please note that several prong tips are damaged, but the gem is still secure.
Faux seed pearls are set along the bar as well as in a halo, framing the rhodolite. These faux pearls are made of an iridescent glass that displays orient, as natural pearls would!
The brooch is fastened by a tension pin with handmade, stylized C-catch.
The brooch is not hallmarked, but tests solid 18 karat and weighs 6 grams.
Please note the minor damage to the gallery of the brooch.
