Antique Victorian 14K Gold Quartz Pearl Pin - California Gold Rush
A nice piece of antique Victorian gold quartz jewelry that is so highly sought after and illustrative of nuggets found during the California Gold Rush era that were then set into pieces of jewelry and worn with pride. The oval gold quartz stone has a significant amount of gold veining against a very white field. The stone is set in a 14K beaded bezel. One step down are four bezel set small pearl accents that sit atop a chased black niello enamel band. The brooch is marked 14K on the safety clasp. There are a couple of very tiny chips to the black enamel that are not visible to the naked eye. This does not detract from pin's beauty. It is in great antique condition with no chips or cracks to the gold quartz stone.
