Object Description

A stunning, fine and impressive vintage Mississippi river pearl and 18 carat yellow gold brooch in the form of a feather; part of our diverse vintage jewellery collections.

This stunning vintage French vintage pearl brooch has been crafted in 18 ct yellow gold.

This vintage brooch has been modelled in the form of a feather.

The feather is comprised of solid yellow gold flutes replicating the details of the feather’s vane, in addition to the tapering quill.

The upper portion of the vane is embellished with a stunning and rare Mississippi river pearl (strong probability); such pearls of this quality are becoming increasingly difficult to locate.

This natural freshwater pearl brooch secures to the reverse with a hinged double pin and safety clasp.

The reverse of the setting is hallmarked with the French hallmarks for 18ct gold (eagle’s head) and the French lozenge shaped maker’s mark.

This impressive brooch is supplied with an independent diamond grading report card.

Images do not always reflect the true colour and brilliance of gemstones and diamonds. The video however provides a truer representation of the actual colour and showcases each stone.
