Like the deep of midnight, this sapphire hued stone glows and is enhanced by a rim of gray/white stones, just as stars are picked out in a dark sky. The stone is beautifully faceted, with a table cut top, and is many sided underneath. It is 1 and 1/8 inches in diameter.
The blue stone is cradled in a bridge style finding, leaving it open for the light to pass through. It sits atop an 8 and 1/4 inch steel shank. Perhaps this is a transitional pin, late Victorian or early Edwardian. Pluck this one for a shard of that midnight sky!
Take this one home with confidence that it is authentic and in excellent antique condition. It emanates from a decades long collection and will be a great addition to a new one.
This hat pin is from Charlotte's personal collection, which was developed over three decades. She has belonged to the American Hat Pin Society for decades, to continue to learn and associate with fellow collectors. It is time for some of these treasures to move on to new houses!
Please note 4 of the rhinestones are missing and can be replaced if you would like. I do not know if we can find any that are that old!
