What’s It Worth? Sapphire & Diamond Art Deco Pin

A local dealer brought in this incredible sapphire and diamond art deco pin from the 1930s for identification and purchase. It did not fetch the amount he had hoped for because we determined that the sapphire was not natural, but synthetic. While inspecting the sapphire under a high-powered microscope, we noticed the curved striae and growth line that indicate it is a synthetic stone. We were, however, able to place another extremely important sapphire from another jeweler for $750,000.

It takes a highly educated, experienced expert to be able to tell the difference between natural and synthetic stones. Call 727.898.4377 or bring your family heirlooms in for an appraisal.
