We are delighted to offer this stunning 15ct gold Georgian stick pin made c.1810 most probably in England.Traditionally, stick pins were worn by wealthy English gentlemen with both an aesthetic and functional purpose: to keep a cravat in place with elegance and style. Gaining popularity from the early 19th century, stick pins were worn by both ladies and gentlemen with a further range of use such as a lapel pin or tie pin. This particular example features a wonderful chased floral gold mount, typical of English Georgian goldsmithing. The mount contrasts the central amethyst and elevates the overall opulence of the design. Today, although it may be an unlikely occasion to dress with a cravat (especially as ornate as in the Regency period) however, it is still very much elegant and practical when paired with modern suits, ties or coats - why not get creative and try out some colour combinations and outfits?Although stick pins may be a relatively small accoutrement, such understated yet distinguished style and history make for a subtle yet sophisticated statement. To the keen-eyed who may notice and take an interest in your sartorial style, it may serve as a wonderful conversation starter, both as a unique piece of jewellery and also a historical object. The pin is unmarked as typical with pieces of that age, however, we have fully tested it to be 15ct+ gold. We have also attached a modern pin cap for safety so that it is ready to wear out of the box - please not this is not gold.
All of our jewellery comes with a complimentary hard shell gift box with a velvet interior.
