This wonderful French jabot pin dates to the Art Deco period during which these pins became a popular jewel. The piece is double ended and to each end features a piece of drop shaped jadeite jade which has been classed as 'opaque mottled green and white' with signs of some resin treatment. The pin itself is crafted from 18 karat white gold and terminates on each end with rectangular yellow and white gold 'ends' to which on one side of each sits a row of 5 'point cut' diamonds that have been grain set and capped with a small yellow gold cap that attaches the jadeite. The pin is marked with two eagle head purity stamps which tell us the piece is French in origin. It is also marked with a very rubbed likely makers mark which is indecipherable. This beautiful pin would be the perfect accompaniment to a large woollen scarf.
