Karat gold - reading 10K passed acid test, thinly wrapped Victorian pin. Petite piece. Most likely a Grand Tour souvenir out of Italy. Blue material has a collection of light scratches not showing up in the photographs and one small flea bite chip right at the tail of the white dove on the left - again, hard to see in the photographs. The pin portion of this is for sure not gold and needs properly attended to as it is not very secure and has greening on it. Deeper scratching on the back frame to area where it was acid tested.
I believe I have this priced fairly for what they sell for retail.
Please do review all of the photographs as they are of the actual item you are buying.
Size: Approx 7/8" across and about 3/4" high. Does not include the protruding pin
Weight: Approx 4.3 grams all inclusive
Main Stone: Unknown Material

All of my gold and silver is authenticated before listing for sale. This piece has been xray analyzed using a Niton XRF Spectrometer to ensure the metal makeup meets industry standards for solid gold jewelry. Where appropriate, acid testing has been used as well. You will not buy gold or silver from me that does not meet the industry standards for how the piece is marked unless noted in the listing.
Gemstones have been tested using a presidium gem tester and have not been reviewed, except where noted, by a gemologist so please assume they are lab produced stones as my opinions are only my opinions. Diamonds have been verified using a presidium diamond tester, they have not been sized or graded by a gemologist. All measurements of stones have been done using a digital caliper, are approximate and may not be exact.
