kyratango
(376 items)

Bought for cheap, because of awfully blurry pics, shipping from USA was the most part of the investment :-)))

It is tiny, 6,5cm long, orchid is 1.5cm

Very dirty, surely from smoker's environment...
Of course some enamel damages, repaired with fimo polymer clay and watercolour pencils :-)

No marks, tested for 14k gold, the stone is an old rosecut diamond.

Never seen an orchid like this as a stickpin, more common are pansies or violets, sometimes an iris flower.

Perfect for my bunch of enamel stickpins!
