Antique Victorian Insect Stickpin, 14K Gold with Garnet, Diamonds, and Emeralds
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.
Gender: Unisex, Age Group: Adult, Color: Garnet/Emerald/Clear diamond/Gold, Size: 2-1/2"
