14k Gold Turquoise & Pearl Starburst Brooch / Pendant.
A small Starburst decorated with turquoise and pearls. The piece is a lovely star shape design in 14kt gold. It is beautifully made with a unique combination of turquoise stones and pearls. This can also be used as a pendant as there is a swivel hook that allows a chain to attach or it can be used as a brooch as there is a locking pin.
There are 6 natural turquoise beads in blue/breen plus 7 cultured pears. There are also 25 natural gulf pearls along the rays of the star (there should be 30 in total but 5 small ones are missing – this is not noticeable unless you are looking very closely).
An appraisal done in 2015 estimated the replacement value at $2,450.00 Canadian.
This piece is a classic with a style that never fades. Dates circa 1940/1950.
Measures 1 3/8 inches diameter
Total weight: 7.2 grams (.231 troy oz).
Excellent Condition. No repairs. 5 small “gulf” pearls missing as noted in the description above.
