Art Nouveau Sapphire Stickpin

Sapphire and Pearl!


Flowing Art Nouveau curves with a hint of Gothic frame a blue sapphire and luminous pearl.  The elegant angles and airy openness of the design are reminiscent of the stone tracery surrounding a window in a Medieval cathedral.  Created by Frank Krementz in 14kt gold, circa 1910.

Frank Krementz was one of the founding brothers of Krementz & Co.  Around 1910 he decided to follow his own direction and founded Frank Krementz Company.  Over the next several decades his firm created artistically inspired cufflinks, stickpins and other jewels.  The firm was known for the elegance of its designs and beauty of its craftsmanship.

Cost:  $475

Measurements:  This 14kt gold stickpin is 2 9/16" long and the top measures 3/4" long by  just over 3/8" wide.  The stickpin weighs 1.7 grams.

The photograph below illustrates the care with which this stickpin was crafted.  The maker's mark of Frank Krementz Company (a reversed "F" abutting a "K") and a gold purity mark "14" are stamped on the lower reverse.  The marks are partially obscured by the pin stem.
