Vintage Retro Modern Mid Century Modernist 14K Rose Gold 18K Yellow Gold Diamond Sapphire Tourmaline Comet Galaxy Pin
H Stern is the finest jeweler in Brazil, known as the Tiffany of South America. While they have one location in New York City, their other offices are all over the world. The Copernicus line of jewelry from H Stern is still produced but is not as complex and as fashionable as the design I present now.
Nicolaus Copernicus (19 February 1473 – 24 May 1543) was a Renaissance-era mathematician and astronomer, who formulated a model of the universe that placed the Sun rather than Earth at the center of the universe, Taking inspiration from the great man, H Stern started a line of jewelry that focused on the universe. While the pin I offer know appears to look like a comet, I believe it is more of a representation of a star/planetary system with the diamonds representing stars and the colored stones planets.
Fashioned of yellow and rose gold, the stones in this "possibly one of a kind pin" are a combination of semi and precious. Safety catch at the back to hold the pinstem in place and condition is absolutely perfect! Don't want it as a pin? Well, then add a conversion piece at the pinstem and wear as a pendant!
