Antique 14k Yellow Gold Deep Amethyst Seed Pearl Bar Pin Set

Gorgeous antique Turn of the Century circa 1900's pair of bar pins in 14k Yellow Gold, the deepest Purple Amethysts and natural (not cultured) seed pearls. The stone color is fabulous, images do not do it justice. A deep and vivid, regal Purple you just don't see often. The pearls are lovely too, little natural buttons with very good luster.

Each bar pin is 1 3/16" long, 6mm at the widest point and 4mm deep not including the pin back. Overall weight for the pair is approximately 4.1 grams or 2.6 pennyweights. They were not polished, patina was left intact. Stones average 4mm diameter measured in the setting, approximately. Pearls are almost 3mm in diameter, approximately.

Condition is superb, can be restored to bright gold if desired but the patina gives them wonderful character. They are marked in the back. One thing to mention is that one clasp has a safety clasp and one does not. Both look original, though, neither appears to be a replacement, both are the earlier clasp type used towards the end of the 19th Century.
