This is a large antique 14K yellow gold Victorian brooch or pin with a locket back. It is 2″ wide x 1-3/8″ x about 3/4 high. The oval center features a starburst in black enamel with a small pearl set in a gold starburst with granulation. There is a small loop on the back which could be used to attach a ring to use it as a pendant or a tassel. There are no marks, but it tests as 14K. This was probably a piece of mourning jewelry, and the locket would have been used for the hair of the loved one. It could be used now for a photo of a living love one. The condition is quite good for a piece that dates to about 1860-90. There is an old repair, well done, on the back where the pin sits, quite common in antique gold jewelry. There is light minor puckering on the front on one corner. This is an impressive and attractive antique pin. Please feel free to ask any questions before purchasing.
