Lapel pin that my grandmothers girlfriend passed down to her, then then gave to me. Real diamon and pearls. We would both love information on it. Says "93785" on back.

Thank you!

    Very nice! :^)
    Maybe Egyptian Revival 1890's-1920's?

    Here's one similar, it's Art Nouveau:

  10. Mswain, 5 days ago
    No, im sorry. I'm still here... just very busy. I haven't yet checked again on the symbol on the back but I will! Also- I very much appreciate all the help!! Thank you to everyone.

    It's ok Mswain, you're very welcome, we are all here to help and learn! :^)

    Five days is a long time not to acknowledge posts offering information from our jewelry experts who I'm sure are equally busy. We are very lucky to have a nice little community of collectors here, nice to be able to keep it that way. :)

    CW posted this on their FB page, an astute observer offered some information there if anyone would care to look.
