The brooch as no marks which is very common for antique and 1940/60’s Italian jewelry.
In 1861, with the unification of Italy, a single silver/gold punching system was introduced, abandoning the old methods used in the various pre-unitary states. The Law of 2 May 1872 liberalized the processing of silver and gold, introducing only an optional punching system for verifying the title.
At the time, Italian jewellers rarely subjected their pieces to official verification and punching
Only in 1934 was introduced uniformity in the shape of Italian silversmith's marks
The Lieutenant Legislative Decree 26 October 1944 n. 313 prescribes the elimination of the littoral bundle from the lozenge. In the impossibility of immediately disposing of the new marks for a certain period, the old punches were used, obliterating the lictorial bundle. In the period 1944/1946, also for the unavailability of the new punches, other unofficial marks are also used provisionally or simply no marks were used
Law 30 January 1968 n. 46 and the subsequent Presidential Decree December 30, 1970 n. 1496 introduced new punches for stamping precious metals

All parts of the brooch have been tested with  gemological equipment:
• black stone and acid for gold
