U.S. Great Seal With Pearls Pin
This brooch was originally designed for the annual First Lady's Luncheon. Crafted in sterling silver clad in 18k gold set with seed pearls. Measures 1 1/2" x 1 1/4".
On July 4, 1776, three of our founding fathers; Benjamin Franklin, John Adams and Thomas Jefferson were given the task of creating a seal for the newly formed United States of America. This symbol of Sovereignty, was adopted in 1782 from the early design suggestions of these 3 great men. The Secretary of State is the official custodian of the Great Seal of The United States.
