Dragon and Diamond Stickpin

Dragon and Diamond!

A fierce dragon protectively cradles a small sparkling diamond.  The Victorians loved to enliven their jewels with a teeming menagerie of dragons, griffins, basilisks and other fantastic beasts.  This example is beautifully crafted in 14kt gold,  circa 1900.

This stickpin was created by Alling & Company.  The firm created elegant jewels from the mid 1800s to 1915.  Their jewels were sold by many prominent jewelers of the day, including Tiffany & Company, Bailey, Banks & Biddle and Bigelow, Kennard in Boston.  The maker's mark for Alling & Co.,  a shamrock enclosing "14" and an "A",  is stamped on the reverse.

The reverse of the stickpin (pictured below) is as carefully crafted as the front.  A sturdy pin stem is attached to the solid back of the dragon with a secure gold collet.

Cost:  Although this elegant stickpin has sold,  you will find many more beautiful stickpins in the Antique Stickpin Gallery.

Measurements:  This 14kt gold stickpin is  2 1/2" in length and weighs 1.7 grams.  The dragon is just over  5/8" tall and  11/16" wide.
