18K Gold Brooch Art Deco Ruby Flower Antique Enamel Pin
Art Deco 18K Yellow Gold Ruby Brooch - This is a rare 1930's hand crafted floral 18K gold pin. It has blue and yellow enameled flowers, each with a natural ruby centers.
This flower brooch measures 1.18 inch by 1.5 inch, weighs 9.4 grams and is hallmarked 750 with additional numbers. It is in mint condition and looks as though it has never been worn, just hidden away in a drawer.
This brooch comes from a close family estate and the previous owner grew up in Europe between World War I and World War II in a well-to-do family that lost most of their belongings in those trying times. This is one of the few pieces of jewelry she kept of her mother's. The family was very religious and the values she learned in the 1920's and 30's led her to a life of selfless service to the poor and shut-ins.
