This antique pin/brooch features 12 diamonds of top quality and color (I1-VS1, F/G Color) set into simplistic bar pin design. These old mine cut diamonds borderline the old European cut; diamonds of this caliber and size of this cut variation were likely owned by someone extremely wealthy & of extravagant taste. Only one of the diamonds is an I-1, the rest are all VS2 or better, the I-1 may have likely been a very old replacement. This pin is nothing short of breath taking & a modern replacement of something of this quality would likely cost well over $10,000! Like other pins due to the structure and the pin back orientation this could be worn as a pendant as well as a pin.
