Carter Moss Agate Stickpin

Carter, Gough Moss Agate stick pin. (J9000)

Carter Moss Agate!

A striking Moss Agate set in an eight-sided white gold bezel.  This elegant Art Deco stickpin was created by Carter, Gough, a maker of fine stickpins, cufflinks and other jewels, during the 1920s.  Crafted in 14kt gold.

Moss Agate is a beautiful variety of fine grained quartz shot through with striking green inclusions.  This example has the appearance of dark green seaweed floating in sunlit crystalline water.  Moss Agate was a favorite gem among jewelry designers and connoisseurs during the early decades of the last century.

The reverse of the stickpin (pictured below) is as nicely finished as the front.  The pin stem is signed with the Carter, Gough & Company maker's mark and "14K" for the purity of the gold.

Cost:  Although this elegant stickpin has sold,  you will find many more fine stickpins in the Antique Stickpin Gallery.

Measurements:  This 14kt white gold stickpin is  2 3/4" long and weighs 3.0 grams.  The octagonal top with Moss Agate is just under  9/16" in diameter.
