Antique Early 1800's Georgian 19k Yellow Gold Persian Turquoise Pin/brooch Rare For Sale
Antique Early 1800's Georgian 19k Yellow Gold Persian Turquoise Pin/Brooch RARE
6.8 Grams total weight
Size and Measurements:The pin measures just over 1 inch by just over 1 inch. The depth measures 3/4 of an inch. There is a slight crack through the gold on the side towards the bottom of the pin, this makes no difference to the look or feel of the pin. This is to be expected with a pin of this age! The piece seems to be dark in color, this is from finger oils over the years turning the gold color to a darker patina. This can be taken off very easily if desired by any jeweler.
Details of Style &
This is an amazing ANTIQUE pin! This beautiful Georgian Era Gold Pin features some of the most beautiful turquoise that is available on the planet. The type of turquoise is Persian Blue Turquoise with a soft blue color. The turquoise does have light wear marks as is normal with this age. The gold work is ASTOUNDING! The beautiful gold work features amazing and unbelievable styling. The beautiful gold work looks to be made in a raised style. This is because this pin actually opens up and forms a locket and even has a place to put a picture of a loved one. There is already a beautiful photo of a Victorian 1860's to 1880's little girl. This beautiful pin also features a raised design on the top side that is studded with Persian Turquoise as well as an antique what looks to be Rose Cut Diamond, the diamond is hard to measure but is very minimal in size, but still beautiful in the old cut style! Beautiful hand made gold work including very difficult granulated gold bead work in varying designs across the top side of the pin. Antique 1800's gold is some of the most difficult gold jewelry to get your hands on, due to it being melted over the years and lost, truly a special pin. If one desired a jeweler could easily make a bale to make this a pendant. This amazing pin and the set it came with would of been custom made by a very rich and wealthy lady of the day, most likely to be worn to very special evenings. This pin would not of been cheap to make and would of taken the jeweler weeks of hand crafting this amazing pieces of jewelry!

the 1800's could not afford to purchase precious metal jewelry such as

About Us:We are two young professionals
"Alexis" & "Chris". We met in a photography class in
college. We both go to college and sell New, Vintage, & Antique jewelry on
as a full time job. We are not your typical college aged kids, we know the
value of a dollar and what customer service truly means, we will always go out
of our way to make our customers as happy as possible. We started out in the
jewelry business knowing individuals who were in the smelting business. As we
watched these smelters melting new, vintage, & antique 100+ year old
jewelry for the metal value, we cringed!! We thought, there must be a way to
save this special and once in a lifetime type of jewelry instead of melting
these wonderful items.Well then the bright idea of selling these
beautiful items smacked us in the face!We started buying small items such
as rings, bracelets and necklaces from these smelters and selling these items
to wonderful people who would appreciate them and cherish them for a lifetime!
After starting out small
time, we started to go to Antique shops, estate sales, estate buy outs,
smelters, sales, coin shows, or just about anywhere possible we could get
our hands on these wonderful and beautiful jewelry items! We started to set up
at trade shows and other events to sell to people, we love the interaction with
people! To work more with our school schedule we eventually phased out the
trade show atmosphere and started selling jewelry on ! I'm glad we did, you
can get just as much interaction with people over the internet as you can face
to face. We love all of our customers and love the quick messages anybody likes
to send our way! After starting to sell jewelry on we started our business
called Aumia Gold & Silver Jewelry And Collectibles LLC, "Aumia"
Is Golden Lady in Latin. We try to offer a variety of jewelry from Rings,
Necklaces, Pendants, Brooch's, Gold & Silver. We also offer Native American
Jewelry, Art Deco Jewelry, Victorian Jewelry, Antique Chinese Jewelry and much
much more! We try to post a mix of each variety every day Mon-Fri.
We found our niche! The
success on has made this into our full time job. Because of our great
loyal customers and new ones every day you are helping us provide an education
in Genetics, Biology and soon to be business. We also donate large amounts of
money to Rotary. We both heavily believe in helping others and creating
wonderful new opportunities internationally and domestically. Aumia has
provided us our future and love towards our passion. We can’t see ourselves
doing anything else. It is something new every day. I combine my hobby of
photography, and meeting new people. We treat people with
theutmostrespect and customer service is our main priority. There
are always goofy stories about us but too much for an listing. We hope we
have given you some insight to who we are and our passion for this industry.
