COMMENTS: Beautiful sterling silver rhinestone stick pin. Very good estate condition with minimal wear indicative of age. The wearing of stickpins began as a practical method of securing the voluminous neck wear that was worn to keep warm and protect the shirt from debris, and also as part of the fine feathers of the strutting gentlemen of the eighteenth century.
Today stick pins are collected for their beauty as miniature object of art and their versatility is limitless. The small size and often unique shapes offers many uses such as adding them to an up-do or securing a trendy scarf. 14
