This is the oldest piece we currently have in inventory, and it's no surprise that it's also one of the most captivating.

Made during the Georgian era, this bar pin depicts an insect with cat's eye cabochons and ruby eyes. The silver from which it was made has developed a beautiful patina as only age can bestow, and the craftsmanship displayed in this bar pin is something we see on only the oldest and most carefully made pieces. It's truly one-of-a-kind.

Though the largest cabochon is cracked - it is in stable condition.

Some specifics:
Period - Very early, likely Georgian.
Material - Silver.
Stones - Cat's eye cabochons, rubies, seed pearls.
Weight - 3.9 grams.
Size - 1 3/4 inches in length.

Fast shipping and beautiful item, but just not quite for me. Also, there is a small repair that was not mentioned in the description. But otherwise, great customer service and fair return policy.
