*DIMENSIONS: ~3-1/4" x 2-3/4"
Wt.: ~49 gms !
Hallmark(s): "C" on the pin's reverse
Conditioner: very good with minor scratching to the metal & a little gold-tone unevenness.
I do notice that there is a black dash where the manufacture missed plating. (See photo.)
This does not impact the pin's wonderful visual impact.

I've enjoyed sharing my pieces with you :)

Please purchase with the knowledge that I am NOT a jewelry expert/dealer. I earnestly tried to describe the jewelry to the best of my knowledge through words, photos, approximate measurements, & stone sizes/gm weights.

The pieces are from my personal collection purchased new and vintage. Unless indicated, the pieces have been previously loved, so normal wear is expected.
