Elegant Edwardian Stickpin


Edwardian guilloche enamel and pearl stickpin. (J9108)

Edwardian Elegance!


The elegant pastel shades favored during the Edwardian era illuminate this striking stickpin.  A creamy white enamel border with gold fleur-de-lys accents surrounds a beautiful blue guilloche enamel with a rosy pearl set in the center.  Crafted in 14kt gold, circa 1910.

The Edwardians created jewels with an elegant airiness that was a dreamlike break from the starker jewels of the earlier Victorian or later Art Deco periods.  This stickpin is a pleasing example of Edwardian elegance  created by Wordley, Allsop & Bliss in the early 1900s.  Wordley was a maker of stickpins, cufflinks and other fine jewels during the first half of the 20th century.  The maker's mark of the firm, "WAB", along with "14K" are stamped on the inside of the pin stem.

Beautifully crafted, this stickpin has a solid gold back which provides a stable base for the enamel work (see photo below).  Also note the strong gold pin stem which is securely attached to the back with a sturdy collet.  Small details like these evince the maker's care in creating this jewel 100 years ago.

Cost:  $545

Measurements:  This 14kt gold stickpin is 2 7/8" in length and weighs 3.3 grams.  The top measures  13/16" by  just over 1/2".
