Where's that adventurous woman who's cutting edge enough to wear a sword pin? This two-piece pin was made for you, circa 1930s.

It's solid sterling silver and set with jewels...a moonstone as handle for the sword and a turquoise and red stone (garnet?) on the sheath. This was made for the female swashbuckler in mind. Swashbucklers were all the rage in 1920s / 1930s films, swooping in to rescue a damsel in distress or heroically right a wrong. Who can forget Zorro in the 1950s, leaving his ~Z~ mark on impressionable kids in front of the TV.

The pin measures 3 1/4 inches long by 1 inch wide. It weighs 18.6 grams. The sword sits in the sheath very securely so there's no need for a chain that was once there to connect the two pieces. The back is marked STERLING and has a secure rollover clasp. The moon stone has a couple of faint internal lines not felt on the outside. The turquoise has a fine hairline that goes nowhere. The red stone is cracked but contained in its bezel.

Back in the Victorian era, sword pins had a concealed purpose. They were often toothpicks in disguise. Some were made of gold and real jewels. Spinach on your teeth at the dinner table was deftly defied with a swoop of the sword. And this sword has a very handy perfect point for keeping you in rousingly excellent dental form.

The silver patina has not been polished or cleaned. Very good vintage condition. Circa 1930s.
