MEASUREMENTS: Pin is 62mm long.
Pin head is 9.5mm long.
Opal is 4.5mm long x 3.5mm wide x 1.5mm deep. Approx 0.13ct.
MATERIALS: 15ct Gold head, 9ct Gold pin, Opal (0.13ct).
HALLMARKS: "15CT" on back of pin head, pin tests as 9ct Gold. Unsigned but attributed to Archibald Knox for Liberty & Co - due to her elegant and sensual curves, and the minimal dotted decorative flourish. If you look carefully at the details this piece has all the tell-tale signs of being designed by Liberty's, and we are very much of the opinion this is an Archibold Knox piece.
VERY GOOD: Some very delicate light engravings on the back of the pin's head, no souble where a pawnbroker has had it at some point during it's 100 year or so life. Luckily this is very shallow indeed and doesn't spoil the front, which is immaculate. The Opal is dainty but if the highest quality, and is not chipped, cracked or cazed. It's simply luminous!
