Victorian Large 15kt Natural Pearl & Enamel Buckle Pin
A fabulous gold buckle pin from the Victorian (ca1880) era! This substantial piece is crafted in 15kt yellow gold (indicating English origin) and has a wonderful 3-dimensional design. A wide strap is threaded through a raised buckle and notch design. Lining the belt loop is a row of natural pearls, accented by a single royal blue enamel stripe.
