I know of this Avon pin. These are not Akoya pearls, but cultured pearls, meaning that they are not real. The weight of this pin is a little over 6 grams or .64 pennyweight of 14k gold which is valued at $28.00 for the gold. The diamond is .12ctw which is very small and only worth $80.00. The added vintage jewelry value brings you to a total of about $130- $150 retail value for this pin. Please don't waste your money!
