    Silver-Topped Gold

    Overall Condition: Good
    Condition Notes: A treasure to pin. Tests as 14k gold and silver. Completed by a pinstem and trombone catch on the reverse. One diamond deficient. One side of the brooch is ever-so-slightly loose. This appears to be a conversion from a multi-strand necklace clasp into a brooch--evidence of solder.
