Out of the past, into a lucky someone’s present and future, comes this exquisite vintage pin.
The elaborate silver work is detailed, precise, and very beautiful; a fitting backdrop for the magnificent turquoise stones.
Three, thick, large, natural Kingman stones left in organic shapes, seem to radiate their gorgeous blue color.
This is classic, old Kingman, with a nubbly surface and neon-blue hue.
There are scratched initials, on the back, but we cannot trace them to any artists.
What difference does it make? The artistry and fabulous stones speak for themselves.
Delicate curves, and beautifully textured silver form a graceful, appealing design.
The carved feathers, or leaves, are unusually curvaceous and impressionistic. This motif suggests the pin dates from around 1970.
There is a charming, leafy shape under each of the top stones, with a chiseled flat bead emerging from it, like a flower bud.
The arrangement of textured and polished silver elements is lovely. Little silver domes appear here and there, like tiny clusters of berries.
All in all, this is a delightful, scrupulously designed and fashioned pin, with outstanding turquoise stones.
Today, the stones themselves are probably worth as much as, or more than, the price of the piece!
So pat yourself on the back, and enjoy your savvy shopping genes; this is a really special pin.
