I recently acquired this unsigned piece and was going to sell it with the rest of the costume jewelry, but it slowly sunk in that this may be something else. It looks too fine in many ways.
I am still not confident about my gold testing skills, but it tested 18K, and it appears solid. Together they weigh 23gm. The crown piece is molded, not stamped. The lapiz lazuli is also real. A close look at the filigree shows that it is not cast, but true filigree.
Anyway, I see a lot of Ciner jewelry with lapiz and I know he did fine jewelry before costume...could this be a Ciner fine jewelry piece?
