Antique Amethyst Stickpin

Alling amethsyt and arch stickpin. (J9455)

Amethyst and Arch

A rich purple amethyst set in a finely crafted stickpin beneath a sweeping neoclassical arch with a fleur-de-lys at the apex and a heart motif at the base.  A wonderful example of the imaginative, eclectic designs of the early 1900s.  Created by Alling & Co. in 14kt gold, circa 1910.

Alling & Co. was a maker of fine stickpins, cufflinks and other jewels during the Victorian era and early 20th century.  The firm was known for creating beautifully imaginative jewels with irreproachable craftsmanship.

This stickpin is finely crafted with a solid gold back to hold and protect the amethyst.  A sturdy gold pin stem secures the jewel when worn.  The maker's mark of Alling & Co. (a shamrock enclosing a "14" and "A") is stamped on the right side of the reverse.  (see photo below).

          Cost:  $435

Measurements:  This 14kt gold stickpin is 2 1/2" long and the top measures 3/4" long by 1/2" wide.  It weighs 1.5 grams.
