Original 1880 handmade 14k pink gold pin. On Peter's now famous pink gold scale of 1 to 10 with 10 as the deepest pink this scores a 5. The center contains a beautiful hand carved black and white onyx hard stone Cameo of a woman’s profile. The carving is of the highest quality. The pin is very interesting. The front hinges open. We believe the inner section was used to contain a picture. There is still room to fit one if desired. This originally may have been part of a larger necklace or something else as there are unused fittings. The round beads above the woman’s head have some small dents in the center bead. That is the only defect we can find on the piece.

  • 1 oval Hardstone hand carved Cameo
  • 14k Rose Gold
  • Stamped: 14k
  • 13.9 grams
  • 1 9/16 x 1 3/16 inch
