We love versatile pieces of jewellery and this antique gold and turquoise safety pin can be worn in so many different ways. It can be worn alone as first intended as a pin. You can also add charms onto one side of the pin and wear it as a charm holder brooch too. And if you're really feeling inventive, it can be worn on a chain, with or without charms, and for the super adventurous, it could even be worn as a statement earring!
The pin is made of 9ct gold (tested as it's unhallmarked) and is a mixture of lovely old yellow and rose tones. At either end of the pin is a turquoise cabochon set in closed back bezel settings, the stones measures approx 3.3mm and 3.4mm in diameter. The pin has a simple 'C' clasp. Without hallmarks it's hard to date the pin exactly but we belive it's likely dates to around 1900.
The pin measures approx 38.7mm wide by approx 5.6mm tall when closed and weighs approx 1.8g in total.
Condition - The pin is in good antique condition with some light surface wear to the gold and turquoise. The side of the pin that opens is a little out of shape but this isn't too noticable when worn.
*Please note the chain, charms and antique box pictured are not included in the sale. The pin will be shipped in a new presentation box and pouch*
