      Woah, do you have any idea what you have here?!
      You picked this up at a thrift store?!?!
      F. Pini made Art Nouveau jewelry around the turn of the century...1900
      He worked with Gold and Sterling and real and semi- precious stones.
      Check out Lang's Antique & Estate jewelry, there's an opal & Diamond pendant/ necklace a lot smaller
      than yours set in 18K Gold. Also on Etsy is a small Sterling pendant with an Amethyst stone for $$$.
      You did well!

      Thanks so much for the information.I bought it because i thought it was beautiful and priced at only 10.00
    3. Ms.CrystalShip Ms.CrystalShip, 3 years ago
      Beautiful?
      It's exquisite, there's so much to see....
      A flora motif, children ( cherubs?) holding garlands of flowers..
      Are the moonstones bezel set? There's NO glue on this beauty.
      Once again...congrats! :)
    4. Junkman60 Junkman60, 3 years ago
      Yes they are all bezel set stones. Im very pleased to own it thanks

      F (Ferruccio) Pini was my grandfather. I never knew him, but I am always searching for his pieces. They help me feel closer to him. He left Washington DC and went back to Florence Italy where he died in June 1963 (the week I was born) My mother is his only surviving child, she is now in her 80s. It's a beautiful piece! Thank you for posting it. I love being able to look at something my grandfather made.

      Your grandfather made my mother's engagement ring in 1956. I have some letters between the two of them in his beautiful handwriting. If you give me a way to share them privately, I'm happy to send photographs of the ring, the box it came in, and the letters. We cherish the ring, and she has now given it to me. Amazing that I've been able to find you! My email is hdmtarleton@gmail.com
