This estate sterling silver Bond Boyd brooch was made in Canada, most likely in the 1950s or 1960s, and features a simple modern design of a cluster of leaves. The surface of the leaves is brushed and the centre stems and branches are polished silver, the contrast adding visual interest to the piece. The estate pin also has a hook on the back so it can be worn as a necklace or a brooch.
65mm at the longest point or 25mm at the widest point.
This vintage sterling silver brooch/pendant is in great vintage condition, with all elements functional and no damage noted. The patina of the piece is slightly tarnished, but will be polished before being shipped.
Shipping costs are the cost of mailing an item, along with any necessary packing/packaging materials. If shipping costs seem high, sometimes they are. When estimating for the purposes of listing an item on Etsy, I have to list the most expensive possible shipping destination in a given country. More expensive items are shipped with tracking and insurance, which adds to the cost. If the difference between my shipping estimate and actual costs are greater than $2, I will refund you the difference.
If you are thinking of purchasing an item, contact me with your postal or mailing code, and I will check the precise shipping costs. For less expensive items (under $50), I am willing to ship by cheaper options, but please be aware that this can extend shipping times by 4 to 8 weeks for international shipping to some destinations.
In short, not turning a profit on postage, but need to cover the costs getting lovely jewellery from me to you!
