Art Nouveau Sapphire Stickpin

Sapphire Scrolls

Luscious, intertwining scrolls frame a radiantly glowing blue sapphire.  This elegant stickpin weds elements of the Art Nouveau and Celtic Revival styles of the early 1900s.  Finely crafted in 14kt gold, circa 1900.

This stickpin was created by Whiteside & Blank, an innovative jewelry maker who in the early 1900s crafted some of the finest stickpins, cufflinks and brooches of the period.  The firm was known for its elegant designs, dramatic, sculptural gold work and unerring craftsmanship.  Whiteside & Blank watches and jewels were retailed by Tiffany & Company and other carriage-trade jewelers of the day.

The maker's mark of White & Blank,  an arrow impaling a crescent,  is stamped on the upper right reverse of the stickpin, along with the gold purity mark "14".   The photograph below illustrates the care and attention to detail taken in crafting both the seen and unseen parts of the jewel.

Cost:  $565

Measurements:  This 14kt gold stickpin is 2 1/2" long and weighs 2.4 grams.  The intertwining top is  9/16" tall and 5/8" wide.
