Victorian Moonstone Stickpin

Moonstone and claw stickpin. (SP9499)

Claw and Moonstone


A moonstone orb softly glows as if it has trapped a moonbeam inside.  The gemstone is held by a finely sculpted claw with sharp talons and realistic scales.  This elegant stickpin was created by an unknown maker in 14kt gold in the years around 1900.

During the final decades of the Victorian era there was a growing fascination with dragons, serpents and other fantastic creatures which was often expressed in the jewels of the period.  Among the more intriguing examples were stickpins with fierce claws clutching gemstone orbs.

This stickpin is finely crafted with a sturdy pin stem and four talons securely cradling the moonstone.   

Cost:  $535

Measurements:  This elegant 14kt gold stickpin is 2 7/8" long.  The claw is 11/16" tall and the moonstone is 5/16" in diameter.  The stickpin weighs 2.9 grams.
