Question: My close-up photos show the front and back of an amethyst heirloom pin which measures a little more than 1 1/2 inches across at its widest point and is stamped "JEC & Co." During the California gold rush, my great-grandmother's grandfather worked in San Francisco where he purchased several gold nuggets from a prospector. He later married and settled in Philadelphia and a jeweler there used some of the gold to fashion the pin, a wedding gift to his wife. I would like to know about its maker, style and value. - S.T., Bordentown
