Surprisingly exquisite antique Victorian - Edwardian period golden citrine , enamel and 14 karat gold stick pin. Classical period revival design key elements. Circa 1900. The citrine is a vibrant medium golden orange cabochon, set in a frame of 14 karat gold with hammered and silky textures, and trimmed with white enamel. What at first glance might appear as a very nice citrine stickpin becomes at second look a wonderful example of artistic refinement and love of high quality and perfectly balanced details. To quote from Miniature Masterpieces - Art of the Stickpin By Arthur Anderson (see link below), " Stickpins have been described as miniature sculptures set atop shafts of gold. This enamel and gold pin is a wonderful example." The pin measures approximately 2.5 inches long. The top measures 16.3 x 16.3 mm diagonal. Marked 14 karat gold and with a maker's mark of a crescent with arrow. Some wear consistent with age. This stickpin has a very close amethyst relative for sale in another of my listings.
