Antique 1910s Edwardian 14K pearl and enamel bar pin
This pretty bar brooch features nine graduating freshwater pearls and 18 seed pearls in a leaf motif design, surrounded by white enamel dots. The irregular shape of these freshwater pearls was fascinating to jewelers at the end of the 19th century, their irregular shapes were well-suited for designs inspired by nature- soft and imperfect. Seed pearls were popular in the 1890s, both strung in strands and set in jewelry. The soft colors of pearls were perfect accessories for the delicate, pastel silk dresses that were in fashion at the time. This would be a beautiful bridal piece, pinned in the hair or to a bodice/lapel, or worn as a vertical pendant as shown here! Excellent antique condition.
Note: I styled this with a gold fill Victorian book chain, available separately. Please be in touch if you would like to purchase both together!
Measurements: 2 ½ inches x 5/16 inch, 5.9 grams
