This pin is very unusual, yet fascinating. The upper portion has Abalone as the centerpiece. The Abalone measures 5/8ths by 3/8ths of an inch. Surrounding the Abalone is an area about 1/4 inch of silver colored metal. Hanging from the center piece, is a 5/8ths inch long faux pearl. Also hanging from the sides of the centerpiece are two small chains. The overall length of the pin is 2-1/2 inches.
There are no markings as to who the maker is. I obtained the pin at an estate sale, so do not know the age.
Buyer to pay USPS First Class Mail Parcel delivery charges from Nevada of $4.15.
SHIPPING COST INFO:
I do combine shipping on multiple items purchased as long as all items will safely fit into a single box. However, my web host is not set up to calculate multiple item shipping costs. At checkout, you will be charged full shipping price on each item purchased and I will refund the appropriate amount of overpayment. If you are uncomfortable with that, you can send me an email with your zip code and stating which items you'll be purchasing and I'll calculate the correct combined shipping charges and send you a custom invoice.
Also, every January the postal service increases shipping charges. This year, many price increases were a bit steep with some package categories adding as much as a dollar on to an already high shipping charge. I try to absorb some of the new charges but that's getting harder with each increase.
International shipping charges also 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.
