Not marked, tested as 10k. The back has a gold rimmed piece of glass so hair or a photo can be put inside. We did not take it apart, assuming it pops off and snaps back on.
Measures about 1 1/8" tall by a bit over 3/4" wide. Fastens with a pin back and safety latch. In wonderful antique condition, cameo is nicely carved with lots of details with stars in her hair, a pendant and lacy dress, with little wear on the gold, a little bend on the back glass rim, probably from being opened and closed over the years, some dirt and patina on the cameo and gold which we have left and not cleaned nor polished.
Weighs 12.6 dwt or 19.6 grams. A really nice example of an old mourning pin. Please ask questions and see the photos. All Reasonable Offers are Considered. Please do not make offers if you have no intention of paying for the item.
We are happy to send more photos or to have one of our graduate gemologists and/or goldsmith take closer looks at pieces to address any concerns prior to a sale. We can size rings for a cost and create a separate repair listing. Sizing costs are dependent upon the thickness of the shank as well as the size needed. We have a vast Estate Department Inventory & may have what youre searching for so dont hesitate to ask if you are looking for a certain piece, antique or newer such as diamonds, bridal/wedding bands, engagement rings or pre-owned watches.
