This is a late Victorian, silver over gold, arrow pin with a pearl and diamond floral cluster. The brooch is set throughout with old cut diamonds which contrast against the silver topped gold that has darkened nicely with age.
This particular arrow's design is unique in that its tip looks like it has been taken from the Queen of Spades and its fletchings/feathers, off the back of an angel.
We love pieces that can be worn in more than one way. This arrow pin would make a lovely veil pin or would add sparkle to any of the other places you might pin it (to the front pocket of a pair of jeans, on the lapel of a jacket, through the knot on the side of a dress). It can also be worn as shown in the last picture, pinned to a black stingray cuff, which can be purchased separately.
