Have you ever seen a more fabulous accessory?! This rare Victorian Garnet stick pin is crafted from fine quality yellow Gold, and features the most beautiful stylized snake motif.
The sleepy serpent is coiled around a smooth, deep wine coloured Garnet cabochon, and the pin itself has the most beautiful golden barley twist. And the back features an immaculate glazed panel, with intricate woven hair work.
As with a high proportion of Victorian jewellery items, the stick pin is not hallmarked but has been tested as 14ct or 15ct high purity Gold.
Well crafted and well cared for, this incredible piece of history will continue to bring joy for at least another hundred years!
It looks great on a coat or shirt lapel, or could be converted to a very special ring by a conversion specialist.
ERA: Victorian c.1837-1901
MEASUREMENTS: This Garnet stick pin has a total length of 75mm, with the Garnet itself measuring 10mm by 12mm.
MATERIALS: 14ct/15ct Gold (Yellow), Garnet, Glass, Woven Hair
HALLMARKS: None Present, tested as 14 or 15ct Gold.
A very fine piece of Victorian jewellery in exemplary condition. This beautiful Victorian Garnet stick pin is simply stunning! I can't express how rare a find this is, the gorgeous clear Garnet cabochon simply glows. It's possibly foiled but this is not my forte so please seek advise if this is important to you. Against the Gold the deep juicy burgundy of the Garnet is a match made in heaven!
The pin itself is thick and strong, so would be suitable to use on heavier fabrics without issue. It does have a slight kink towards the top, whether by design or wear I cannot say. The coiled snake motif is lovely with a high yellow Gold lustre and no evidence of wear. The glazed panel to the rear is immaculate and features some lovely brown hair work. The barley twist is very fine indeed, and should you choose to convert the stick pin would make a lovely feature on a bespoke ring!
