Very nice sunburst pin…what makes this pin pop is the opal in the center! Wow, it really is beautiful showing flashes of red, blue and green! Also soldered to the back of the pin are two rings so that the pin may be worn as a pendant. The pin measures approximately 1 inch in diameter. Circa: I believe the sunburst part of the pin is Edwardian, however I do not believe the opal center was original to the piece…Beautiful none the less!!
