It was adapted to a pin with a costume pin back.
The original bee pendant is 10k Yellow Gold with a 12k two tone leaf applied to the back.
Nicely detailed and well made, even the addition of the pin back is well done.
Sparkly wings from the chased texture.

Overall approximate measurements are 15mm or 5/8″ by 16mm or 5/8″ by 5mm or 3/16″ deep.
In excellent condition.
Marks were covered by pin back.
Overall approximate weight is 1.73 gram, not flimsy.
Estimated to date from the 1980’s.
