Description

This is an antique stick pin or tie pin, which is made of gold and set with 3 small diamonds. The metal is not marked, but tests as better than 14 Ct and not as good as 18 Ct. Presumably it is 15 carat, which was a Victorian gold standard. The diamonds are cut in an irregular fashion, which was obviously done by hand. The stones are set to represent the flowers at the end of an engraved branch. The pin head has a diameter of 1.2cm, which is relatively large for a stick pin. The diamonds measure between 1 and 2mm across. The entire stick pin is 6.2cm long, weighs 1.5 grams and is in excellent condition. It comes with its original box, which was retailed by the jeweller E.G. Parker of Altrincham and Knutsford. The box is structurally totally sound. The outside, however, is rather scuffed looking, but the velvet-lined inside is still in fine condition.
