This is one of many pieces of jewelry purchased recently at a higher end jewelry estate sale.
This brooch pin is what I would consider large in size. It measures 4 inches from the bottom of the stem to the top of the rose and is about 2.5 inches across at the widest point.
Although gold in color, it is marked 'Sterling'. I believe gold colored sterling is called 'Vermeil'. I did a google search as to why something marked sterling would be gold in color and I found the following definition: "Vermeil pieces appear to be gold but are much cheaper and lighter than solid gold. It is a traditional luxury material used for table plate, grand decorative pieces and jewelry."
The piece is used but in great condition. As previously stated, I obtained it at an estate sale so I do not know the age. If I had to guess I would say it could be 1960s time frame.
There are some very fine scratches, but you have to look hard to find them. There are no dents or gouges. I used a polishing cloth on it, but did not get into the deep corners so you may want to clean it again.
Buyer to pay $4.99 for USPS First Class Mail Parcel shipping. Shipping is from Nevada.
NOTE - I gladly combine items for discounted shipping as long as all items are paid for at one time and as long as all items can safely fit in to a single box. If purchasing multiple items it's best to contact me first so that I can adjust the shipping price. Otherwise, you'll be charged the full delivery cost for each item. If it's inconvenient to contact me, and you get charged the full rate for each item, I can issue a refund, but why pay all that up front, just to be re-imbursed.
With this year's postal increase, all shipping charges increased and international shipping took a tremendous leap. International shipping will now depend on the country. Buyer must contact seller for international shipping charges before making a purchase. Seller reserves the right to void any international transactions where contact has not been made prior to purchasing.
All items in my listings come from either estate or garage sales. I do not know if they came from homes where smoking or pets were present. All items are sold in the same condition as when I received them.
