This is a type of vintage item I hadn’t stumbled upon until now: Iris or Rainbow stones. These stones are multi-colored and appear in pieces dating from the late 19th to the early part of the 20th century. This particular bar pin is a gold-tone base metal with a mother of pear backing and applied design riveted on top. Top piece is set with one round white faceted glass stone. Three (3) Iris or Rainbow stones dangle below in 8-prong settings. Overall length is 2 1/8-inch and 1 3/8-inch wide. C-catch pin assembly. Very good condition.
*I am continuing to research these stones and will post more as I find it!
All of my vintage items are all previously worn and loved and so are sold as is. I have a long history in the jewelry industry (since 1993!) and am a certified GIA gemologist. I do my best to accurately describe items and am confident in my ability to assess stones, metal, construction, etc. Many pieces have not been polished or cleaned (aside from a soft cloth) due to their delicate nature or to retain their natural patina. Some items can be altered, some cannot but please feel free to ask questions, I will answer them as quickly as I can. Please keep in mind that custom-altered pieces are non-returnable.
Return policy: I want you to be satisfied with your purchase. I will accept returns and refund the full amount paid less the cost of shipping and insurance. I ask that all items are returned to me in the same condition in which they were received and within two (2) weeks of receipt.
