The Amethyst Moth

An exotic moth or other winged night creature sparkles with a vibrant purple amethyst and a small diamond.  An elegant stickpin created by Hans Brassler in 14kt gold, circa 1910.

Hans Brassler was an imaginative jeweler who in the early 1900s created a wonderful menagerie of insect-inspired jewels.  This elegant example features a purple amethyst set as the body between two sweeping wings along the sides.  Beneath the wings the creature's legs extend downward and cradle a small diamond.  Several additional examples of Brassler's work are pictured below.

This stickpin is beautifully crafted with a sturdy gold pin stem to secure the jewel when worn.  The maker's mark of The Brassler Company (a double oval surrounding "14B") is stamped on the lower left reverse.

Cost:  $525

Measurements:  This 14kt gold stickpin is 2 1/2" long and the top measures just over 1/2" by  1/2".  It weighs 2.0 grams.
