Antique Victorian Agate Pendant - Converts To Pin

Antique Victorian agate pendant which converts to a pin . It is one piece 
that can be worn either way. The bale simply folds down behind the piece. 
There is a pale apricot or peach color agate surrounded by laurel leaves. 
It has a roll over safety clasp that is in working order. Set in a gold filled 
setting. Dates to around 1900.

1 3/16" tall by 1" wide 
(that is with the bale folded down)

---You can see the solder on the back of the piece where the pin was added. 
---Some wear to the gold filled finish.. 
---The pin back was obviously added at a later date. Probably around the 1920s.
