Antique Sapphire Stickpin

Alling sapphire and laurels stickpin. (J9482)

Laurels and Sapphire

A sparkling sapphire rests in a finely crafted network of golden, interlocking scrolls and geometric shapes.  Beneath the sapphire are three pendant laurel leaves.  A wonderful example of the imaginative stickpins created by Alling & Co. in the early years of the last century.  Created in 14kt gold, circa 1900.

This stickpin is finely crafted with a sturdy bezel holding and protecting the sapphire.  A sturdy gold pin stem secures the jewel on a wearer's lapel, tie or scarf.  On the reverse you can see the careful construction of the intricate design.  The maker's mark of Alling & Co. (a shamrock enclosing a "14" and "A") is stamped on the upper left reverse (see photo below).

          Cost:  $465

Measurements:  This 14kt gold stickpin is 2 1/2" long and the top measures 5/8" long by 7/16" wide.  It weighs 2.2 grams.
