Art Deco Sapphire Stickpin

Sapphire Geometry!



The intertwining, angular lines of a golden interlace cradle a bright blue sapphire and small sparking diamond.  A nice example of the elegant geometry of Art Deco design.  Crafted in 14kt gold,  circa 1920.

This striking stickpin was created by Whiteside & Blank ,  a maker of fine stickpins, cufflinks and watches from 1890 through the first half of the 20th century.  Whiteside & Blank was the first firm in the United States to manufacture wrist watches for women.  The firm created jewelry and watches that were sold at Tiffany & Company and other leading retail jewelers of the day.

The maker's mark for White & Blank, an arrow impaling a crescent, is stamped of the reverse of the stickpin, along with the gold purity mark "14".  The photograph below of the reverse illustrates the care with which the stickpin was crafted.

Cost:  $485

Measurements:  This 14kt gold stickpin is 2 1/4" long and weighs 2.0 grams.  The top is  11/16" tall and 9/16" wide.
