Enamel and Diamond Star Pin

$3500.00 USD  Item: 1046

A wonderful and unusual 8 pointed star pin; one of my personal favorites. The skill and talent of the jewelers at the turn of the century thrills and amazes me. This pin is a case in point as the 4 point diamond star can be turned to reveal a second color of enamel underneath!! Blue with slight tinges of green changes to a fiery red and orange. Each diamond arm contains 5 rose cut diamonds. The central point of the pin contains an old European cut diamond weighing approximately 0.20 carat. The base of the pin is a double tiered open work cage and the pin retains its original C clasp.
