"WIFE" sweetheart pin
« on: March 26, 2014, 02:51:43 PM »
I no longer have this pin, but pictures last forever..

This is a 14k Gold plated Mother of Pearl sweetheart pin with an opening locket to place a picture in. The unit symbol on the outside is the 4th Army. The pin came in a velvet light blue carboard box. There were several different versions of this example. This one was still wrapped in celophane wrapping but it was cracked so I was able to open the locket..

The unit specific pieces are really cool. The quality of vintage jewelry just doesn't compare to today.

Lots of folks today are buying these items at sales and then having the sterling pieces melted down..
