12kt Gold GF Mothers Gem Pin Signed Van Dell 1950s Jewelry
This gold wreath pin is not vintage Acrostic jewelry, but it is something very similar. It dates from the early 1960s and when purchased, it was a custom made piece of jewelry from a jeweler. It was made to be given to a mother or grandmother and the gemstones represent the months of the children or grand children.
On this pin, there are 6 grand children. 1 Diamond (April), 2 Emerald (May), Aquamarine (March), and Two Tourmaline Stones (October). The 5 remaining stones are clear glass, or stones that were not replaced. Sometimes there were more grandchildren, but the pins were often not updated.
This pin is signed Van Dell 1/20 12kt GF. The pin is in pristine condition with no signs of wear or loss of gold. All of the gemstones are original and present. All are sparkling except for a few of the old clear glass stones that show some lack of luster from age. The pin has the original fine working safety clasp and measures 1 1/4" wide.
Comes gift wrapped and shipped in a new presentation brooch box.
