    2018-10-01 06.48.37.jpg This piece is just under 2" in diameter. I received it when my mother passed away. I believe it was made prior to 1970. Can anyone tell me anything about it?

    All I can tell you is the painfully obvious which is that it has a natural black star sapphire, a garnet, two pearls and some diamonds!
    Not sure about age so I'm probably totally wrong but id say made between 60s-80s and is a nice little vintage piece.

    If you have any markings or stamps do share as that can help others who are better at identification help you to identify age or any other possible approximate information :)

    Thank you! The only making I can find is on the back. At the top isit stamped 14k and on the bottom there's a "C" with an "o" inside of it. I've researched makers stamps and can't find anything on it. I appreciate your help!

    I agree with @TheGarnetGirl.
    Perhaps the stones are birthstones to represent children.
    It's hard to tell whats going on with the diamonds, because of the reflections. But if that is a tree-like motif with branches, then I think it could be a "mother" charm.

    Thank you. I think you're right about it being a family tree. The stone colors just don't make sense unless it's older than I think it is.
