Pearls and Enamel

A small brooch with pearls set in square recesses between finely engraved panels of rippling waves framed in white enamel.  This elegant jewel is a testament to the beauty of small things.  Created by Riker Bros. in 14kt gold, circa 1910.

The brooch is finely crafted with a sturdy pin stem and early safety clasp securing the jewel when worn.  The upper reverse is stamped with the maker's mark of Riker Bros. (an "R" above a scimitar) and the lower reverse is marked "14K" for the purity of the gold.
