So this pin is pretty neat I have identified it have been made in the early 1900's. It is unmarked but tests to be 10k-12k. I know that in the early 1920's when they found King Tut's tomb the Egyptian revival sprung up. And some companies were setting real Egyptian artifacts in gold. Do you think this is a real Egyptian artifact? It measures 25mm by 20mm. I paid $4 for it.

    Beautiful jewellery! The scarab may be antique as many were mounted in this period :-)

    Thank you for your kind comments :) I have been talking to several people and there is doubt that it is real but whether or not it is it is still pretty cool :)
