Antique/Estate Circa, 1901-1915

Offered is a lovely antique estate Edwardian pin designed in yellow gold.

Beautifully crafted, this pin is quite ornate with gorgeous openwork filigree.

Mounted at the center of the filigree is a stunning synthetic pink sapphire.
Synthetic gemstones were widely used during the Edwardian period, this pin is a wonderful example,
conveying the delicacy and ethereal beauty that is innately appealing from this era.

The pink sapphire gemstone is a noticeable size measuring approximately 12.6mm x 8mm. The pin measures approximately 1-7/8 inches in length and just over 1/2 inch in width, at the widest point.

A beautiful piece of antique jewelry, although designed to be worn as a pin, this particular style can also be worn as a pendant. As it is somewhat linear in shape, a chain can be thread under the pin stem and worn beautifully as a pendant, while enhancing the pin’s versatility. Please see picture.

On the backside is the pin-stem, with a lever catch. The lever catch was patented in about 1902 and was often used on these types of Edwardian pins. The lever catch opens "backwards" as the knob up means it is closed. Also seen on the back side is an early riveted hinge pin, which began to be use circa 1900.

In lovely antique condition.

Hallmarked 10K.

Combined weight, 3.1 grams.
