!What a great little piece this antique shamrock stickpin is!
With lovely clear hallmarks, this stickpin dates back to 1890 and was created in London during Queen Victoria's reign. As often found with Victorian jewellery there's been great attention to detail and this pin is no exception! Each leaf has been delicately hand-engraved and the stems are beautifully patterned, even the pin itself has a twist design, she really is a delightful piece of jewellery!
The clover, or shamrock, was often used to symbolise luck, success and harmony and used to ward off demons and misfortune.
