The hand work on this wonderful Victorian stick pin was very exacting and time consuming. The border accent and high polished rims to the flower petals is lovely work but the high point is the interior of the flower. What appears to be a granulated surface is in fact an extremely minute hand engraved surface you can only see the details of with a loupe. This amazing flower was then attached to a square shaped pin and accented with a prong mounted white sapphire center. The rose coloration of the gold is very prominent, not at all pale as sometimes found.

The gold is in excellent plus condition with no cracks, rips, dents, holes, missing pieces, nasty scratches, abrasions or repairs. The pin has a good point and has a curve from usage over the years. This is an original stick pin and has always been a stick pin. With my 10 power loupe I found a couple extremely minute rub spots where people tested for gold purity. The faceted sapphire is without chips or cracks and is firm in it's prong mounts. It is nicely white and has a good amount of subtle sparkle due to it's multitude of facets.

There are no gold marks on the stick pin as is common to the time period so Rich has acid tested and will guarantee a minimum of 10 kt. The flower measures approx. 3/8" in diameter and the stick pin is a total of 2 5/16" tall.
