Antique Victorian 14K gold stick pin in the form of an insect with garnet, diamonds, and emeralds. Beautifully rendered with gems, antennae, and legs, this stick pin is ideal for a woman or a man. The six legs, thorax, antennae and abdomen indicate that it is an ant.
The faceted garnet body, 7mm by 4mm, is gold backed. Four old-cut diamonds range from 1-1.5mm. The cabochon emerald eyes are 2mm. The insect is 3/4" and the pin stem is 2-1/4", or 2-1/2" end to end.
The condition is very fine with a tiny chip to one emerald and slight surface wear to the garnet. I have not cleaned it but you may wish to.
