What a unique bit of Victorian era jewelry. This 10K yellow gold & diamond love knot lapel pin/tie tack is a rare item find from this era. Most likely from the turn of the century. Fresh from the estate. Prior owners family made their fortune during the turn of the century and lost it in the great depression.

Notable: These examples are very difficult to find. I was only able to find one other comparable piece available for sale. The back of for this pin may not be original and is not testing out as gold. This piece is a fine example and shows wear consistent with its age.
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.
