This Victorian stick pin with a safety dates back to circa 1875. Guaranteed to be made of 14 karat gold, this pin has great three-dimensional quality. Lines of gold and garnets balloon up from the base and join together, reminiscent of the Montgolfier balloons. The bohemian Czech garnets are a dark pomegranate color rarely found today. Both the pin and the safety have a wonderful twist on the shaft and a line engraved base. This pin is a great piece of period jewelry. It is the perfect addition to your wardrobe.
