A beautifully designed vintage fly or insect pin crafted in 18K yellow gold showcasing a vibrant mystic topaz and fiery orange citrine. The wings have been enameled with an unusual combination of minty green and teal green hues. This piece is larger in scale, measuring 1.2 inches long by 1.4 inches wide. The back of the pin is stamped “750” for 18K gold purity marks. The pin stem itself has likely been stamped “K18” along with Italian hallmarks for 18K gold purity, while the pin holder/lock is stamped “14K,” which is likely a later replacement.
