Antique Edwardian 9ct Gold Safety Pin, Small 9k Stock Pin Brooch.Add to Wishlist
Antique 9 carat gold safety pin. This simple 9k gold safety pin is made from a medium gauge 1 mm rounded wire. It's an older style which is sprung at one end to allow it to catch in it's clasp and secure the sharp end. Antique safety pins have a variety of modern uses from being a simple brooch to securing a shawl or scarf (perfect for those winter months!) or on the end of a chain to lengthen it and give a place to secure charms. I think they made great collar or tie pins for a stylish suit accessory. Circa early 20th century, British in origin.
Stamped 9ct, professionally tested and assessed as 9 carat gold, which is yellow in colour.
Measures approx 30 mm / 1.15 inches long by 5.6 mm / 0.22 inches tall.
Weighs 0.9 grams.
