A superb quality late Victorian period 14K sunburst brooch c1895-1900. This 14k yellow gold large sunburst convertible pendant brooch measures 1-1/4" in diameter, and has 40 lovely graduated natural pearls mounted on curved rays of the sun shaped brooch interspersed with large pearls on gold stalks. The pearls measure from 2.5mm - 3mm, and the pearls on stalks measure 3mm each. All pearls are of excellent creamy white lustre and they are superbly matched. The pin itself has a pin with c-clasp, which can be unscrewed and completely removed with a threaded finger screw in the shape of the number 8. There is a swing-up loop (in 10K yellow gold) separately attached to allow the pin to be worn as a pendant, or to be mounted on a hatpin or pinned into the hair for evening wear. There is a 22 point round European cut genuine diamond (SI-1 clarity, G-H colour), bezel set in the center. The craftsmanship is simply superb, this pin is of the highest quality. Convertible pins were usually only sold in quite high-end jewellery shops. Intact convertible pins are seldom encountered, and this example is in excellent condition, with no chips, cracks, dents, alterations, losses, repairs or damage other than a tiny bit of bending to the tip of the pin. It comes with an older independent gemmologist's appraisal, with a value of $1700 CAD.
