Antique Edwardian 1900s 14K convertible pearl sunburst pendant pin

A stunning early 20th century 14K combination brooch + pendant from a Canadian jeweler. This style of convertible pendant/pin - usually round, gold, and accented with small diamonds - allowed women to wear a single piece of fine jewelry in two very different ways. Jewelry catalogs from the early 1900s are filled with pages of elegant, convertible pieces like this one (see the second to last photo!)

This piece has a lashing, sunburst design with "arms" of sunlight extending outward in long/short sequence. The impression of movement is incredible: there is a pulsing, radiating effect. The entire pin/pendant is set with pearls of varying size - fifty-four total. The collapsible bail completely folds away to allow this to be easily worn as a pin, too. The pin clasp is a style that we see only from 1900-1915 or so - further evidence of this being a turn-of-the-century piece.

Note: This piece comes with a jewelry appraisal for insurance/replacement. 

Measurements: 1 3/8" round pendant
Era: 1910s
