Beautiful well made old Victorian pin, circa 1850, English hallmark. Handmade light pink frame. On Peter’s now famous pink gold scale of 1 to 10 with 10 as the deepest, this scores a 4. The shells are highly translucent with brown centers and a broad white circle around it and a brown base. They are very well polished. The pin stem and catch are of old style. The pin locks securely. The pin is English and tests 12k. The shell almost look like Parrot’s beak to us, but we do not know the exact species or variety of shell. 3 natural sea shells. Tested: 12k. 12.1 grams. 3 3/8 x 1 1/8 inches.
