Signed by Kohn & Co., a Newark, NJ, manufacturer when that city was in its heyday as a jewelry center, this remarkable 14-karat (as stamped) white gold pin is die-struck in the lacy Edwardian style that was still current when it was made, c. 1920. Measuring about 43 x 18.3 x 4 mm., it is of ample size. There are thirteen early American cut round diamonds that weigh about 0.53 carat total, having approximate overall quality of H-I-J color and VS clarity. One side diamond is chipped, but is not distracting to the unaided eye. The item is in excellent vintage condition. From the detailed finish on the leaf designs on either side of the central diamond, to the "keeper" mechanism on the back that keeps the pin propped upright when worn on fabric, the piece is full of the small touches that bespeak the craftsmanship of a bygone era. In its own modest way, this pin is breathtaking.
