(not counting weekends and/or holidays). I cannot change this policy.

Do me a favor please and READ THE ENTIRE description - always. I do my darn best.

I attach 12 detailed pictures, inside, outside, sideways, etc. On my hand, with a coin, with the scale, with the measuring tape etc. All gold is tested, all information imparted is factual. I don't sugar coat anything, I don't change or enlarge pictures but tell it how it is.

Do NOT leave undeserved feedback because YOU glanced over the details or imagined something different too big, too small, too heavy, too light, not what I expected etc. It's LITERALLY all in the description. For this listing and all others. Alloys with a higher gold content will have a color that is more saturated and yellow. In contrast, lower-karat alloys will look paler in comparison. 9K gold is NOT as saturated as 14 or 18K gold. RARE AND VERY COLLECTIBLE ca. 1820 Georgian 9 k yellow gold mourning pin brooch with seed pearls. Please read the product parameters carefully and choose the jewelry that suits you to avoid unnecessary trouble. I have 2 very similar mourning brooches listed.

This one is rectangular the other one is oval. Both from the same estate and both belonged to the same woman see my other listings and the last picture.

Georgian era: 1820s pin brooch - which could easily be converted into a pendant by a competent jeweler (I currently do not offer this service). Rare find: 200+ year old pins in this condition are rare to find. Mourning jewelry: braided hair under glass. Hairwork or jewelry made of human hair has appeared throughout the history of craft work, particularly those made to be used for private worship and mourning. From the Middle Ages through the early twentieth century, memorial hair jewelry remained common.

Hair, considered to be a remnant off the person it was cut from, also has often played a part in myths and legends. Very nicely surrounded by seed pearls. A seed pearl is a small natural pearl formed in either saltwater oyster or freshwater mussel that is usually less than 2 millimeters in diameter.

Victorian England small seed pearls were often used in mourning jewelry. Back is plain gold - check. Pin is in good condition.

Glass has small dust specs inside. Again this is a 200+ year old item. Wear is commensurate with age.

Pin itself is not gold (most of the pins attached to the brooches are not gold). No repairs, no issues, glass is intact.

Pin is a bit warped (again very normal when worn again this is an antique item). Huge - check ALL the measurements. This is a 200 year old antique pin - let's put this into perspective. People had horses not cars in the 1800s.

James Monroe was US President. People had no indoor plumbing. In 1820 the life expectancy in the US was 44.9 years (females) - for men even less (38). (perfectly normal for an antique item of this age) but tested by me. 9K gold is NOT as saturated as 14 or 18k gold.

Pin itself is not gold (most of the pins attached to the brooches are not gold as gold is too soft of a metal). 2 centimeters long x 1.3 centimeters at its widest (or 0.79 inches x 0.51 inches). Use a measuring tape or a ruler so you can visualize the size properly.

Compare the item to a pin you own FOR SCALE. More precise than this is IMPOSSIBLE. Compare the weight to an item you own. Read the product parameters carefully and choose the jewelry that suits you to avoid unnecessary trouble. Weight and measurements are approximate and taken to the best of my abilities.

Compare the measurements and the weight to a pin you own. I really cannot do better than this. It cannot be my fault if you don't read the entire description. THIS IS A SMALL BUT LOVELY PIN: PLEASE FOR THE LOVE OF G_D.

FORGETTING TO READ the measurements. Cannot and is NOT my fault. If you do not know what 2 cm look like (although I show the item in my hand, next to a coin and ON THE MEASURING TAPE) then I urge you to take out a measuring tape and check for yourself. Same goes with the weight.

Gold, pearl colored, hair under glass is dark blond (light brown) at least that is how I see the colors. You might perceive the colors differently or they might display differently on your screen. 9 k gold is NOT as yellow as 14 or 18 k gold (see information on alloys above). Pictures were taken in broad sunligh t and in the shade for comparison purposes with an iphon.

Display differently on your screen or you might perceive the colors differently. The sun brightens every picture. No alterations were made, no enhancements, no filters used, no photo-shop. I DECLINE ANY AND ALL RESPONSIBILITY as to how colors display on your screen or how you might perceive them.

There is quite simply no winning. Please read the product parameters carefully and choose the jewelry that suits you to avoid unnecessary troubles.

WHAT YOU SEE IS WHAT YOU'LL GET - THERE ARE NO MYSTERIES ONLY CUSTOMERS THAT DO NOT READ. Compare the stated measurements and the weight. To an item you own. MORE ACCURATE THAN THIS IS IMPOSSIBLE. THE pictures - taken from all angles. Pictures are part of the description. Feature to enlarge the pictures. "I thought it was different". Thought you spent too much. Gift recipient doesn't like it.

What you see is what you'll get and if you have a doubt, send me a message and I'll gladly help or take more pictures. YOU HAVE ALL THE NECESSARY INFORMATION TO MAKE AN INTELLIGENT DECISION AND I DO NOT SELL MY ITEMS ON APPROVAL.

Now if you "think" you can coerce me into a return with false claims - think again. A LL SALES ARE FINAL! Mourning pin is in good USED PRE-OWNED ANTIQUE condition with normal wear for a very very old item - not new as new or anything else. It is an ANTIQUE 200+ years old used pin -- wear is commensurate with age.

Pin is NOT large - DOUBLE CHECK ALL MEASUREMENTS. The glass has little white dots (see pictures) which are dust specs but is in good condition - again over 200 years old. The braided hair under glass is fine.

The pin (not the brooch) itself is slightly warped. This is a nice antique mourning pin. I have 2 of these brooches/pins. Both belonged to the same estate and to the same person.

See last picture for comparison. IT GOES WITHOUT SAYING (and often it doesn't) that this listing is ONLY for the oval brooch. The rectangular one can be found in my other listings. Em has NOT been cleaned. I never clean any of the vintage or antique items.

In order to preserve their patina but leave it to the new owner to do as they deem fit. AS DESCRIBED (in a very detailed lengthy text, repeating ad nauseam the specs). AS-IS (an antique 200 year old item with wear - wear is commensurate with age).

AND ABSOLUTELY NO DISCUSSIONS AFTER THE SALE. NO GIFT BOX but nicely and securely packaged and always fully insured.
