Vintage Portuguese Mixed Metal 9kt Gold & Silver Diamond Ruby & Pearl Brooch Pin
Vintage Portuguese Mixed Metal 9K Gold & Silver Diamond Ruby & Pearl Brooch Pin. The piece is in good vintage estate condition and ready to wear but it is missing a few of the rubies. It is composed of 9K gold and .833 silver. It was made in the Portuguese city of Porto and has hallmarks on the back of the piece as well as on the pin itself. There is a makers mark on both as well but I cannot identify it. The piece is set with 1/2 carat of rose cut and old mine cut diamonds as well as 1/4 carat of rubies which are believed to be synthetic. We received this piece from a prestigious estate jewelry store that recently closed so we do not know much about this piece’s history.
The piece measures about 2.4" long by 1.4" wide and weighs a total of 15 grams.
