This lovely Swoboda pin has a carved jade fish as the central design. I believe it is a coy or a beta. Swobota is a California jewelry manufactured from the 50s. They were known for their use of semi precious stones and fine gold plated cast settings. It was the "jewelry of the stars". Gold plated setting with 3 cultured pearls. Measures only 1 3/4" long. Marked Swoboda. Nice tight pin back with safety catch An unusually lovely pin.Email for more photos.
WOW!! This is a big rhinestone pin!! It measures almost 3 1/2" across. Brilliant glass emerald and topaz color stones in alternating petals. Excellent condition, but no name on the pin. Good tight pin back with safety closure. Pictures don't do it justice.

Old sterling pin is well marked and old.It is two birds among branches and blossoms. The blossoms and birds breasts are decorated with set rhinestones. I believe it is foreign due to the lettering on the mark which makes not much sense to me. Ma, (looks like small p), lle, (and another small p). Mapllep. Then a sterling stamp. and a third stamp Pat Pend. Size is about 2" x 2". Great condition.
This is a stunning vintage pin. It is just costume jewelry but made heavy and well. It looks like a spinning starburst. (like fireworks!) The center cluster is made up of purple aurora rhinestones. The outer spinning points are embellished with smaller stones of the same color. Set in an antique silver toned setting, and measures about 2 1/2" across. No mark on the back that I could find. All stones intact and pin is in wonderful condition.
