14 karat yellow gold natural sapphire and seed pearl bar pin. Set in the center is one round faceted blue sapphire measuring approximately 4.50mm in diameter and is considered to be light to moderate gray-ish blue. Accenting the pin are 18 seed pearls. Also set in the pin are 8 square cut synthetic blue sapphires. These are synthetic sapphires and not glass--they have the SAME physical, chemical and optical properties of the ones made by mother nature, ONLY difference is these were made in a lab. Please note that stones were being synthesized as early as the mid 1800's. When it came to these accent stones, be they sapphire, ruby or emerald they usually used synthetics because to cut the stones in the more decorative shapes there was a lot of breakage so they did not want to use the natural stone...therefore, the synthetics! Many people will confuse synthetic with simulant! Simulants DO NOT have the same physical, chemical and optical properties of the natural stone--and are usually glass or some other imitation! All of the sapphires (the round natural sapphire and the synthetic square sapphires do display some wear due to age. The pin measures a "smidge" over 3 inches and is secured by a locking safety clasp. Circa: 1920's

Frequently Asked Questions

Sizing details

If your item needs to be sized, engraved etc., please add an additional 5 working days to shipping estimates. Antique jewelry requires skilled jewelers that are accustomed to working on fine antique jewelry, therefore we prefer that all sizing and alterations be preformed by our jewelers.

Each ring purchased from us includes one complimentary sizing. Please understand some rings cannot be sized, such as eternity bands, enameled rings or rings that would have to be sized so much that the integrity of the mounting would be compromised. It is for that reason we ask prior to purchase, that you ask if the ring can be sized to your specifications.
