This is an antique Victorian sash pin dating to the late 1800's. It is oval in shape with and open design in a gold tone finish. Within the frame is a raised leafy vine design around a center diamond shaped area containing a large oval deep purple faceted glass stone. Flanking this stone at each side are additional smaller deep purple stones. There is some finish wear on the outside edge and patina to the inside vines. Size is 2 7/8 inches in width by 3 inches in length. The closure is a C clasp soldered to the frame with a long straight slightly extended thick pin stem.

Sash pins were a type of pin used to secure a sash at a lady's hip when the fad of wearing a sash over the shoulder and across the bosom became a popular imitation of Queen Victoria. Most have thick pins stems to allow for penetrating several layers of fabric.
