All the rage in the '40s, due in part to Trifari's series of sterling King and Queen crown versions, the jeweled pins came in myriad sizes and stone selections, allowing wearers to customize their crowns.
The sterling silver crown pin presented, circa 1940s, showcases a pair of large high domed oval ruby red glass cabochons and a smaller glass bullet cabochon (unfoiled and open backed) surrounded in a bed of clear chaton rhinestones.
The pin measures about 1 3/4 inches x 1 1/2 inches with a 3/8 inch profile or height. Oval cabs are approximately 18 millimeters x 12 millimeters; bullet cab, 6 millimeters. Weight of the pin is 16 grams.
Condition is excellent vintage. All components intact. All glass cabs free from chips, nicks, cracks or breaks. All rhinestones intact and sparkling with minimal age commensurate dimming. No dents or bends to silver. Patina intact. No polishing done. Pin shaft has slight bend not affecting function. Clean. No damage / no repairs.
Reverse of the crown's bottom is signed with a portion faintly visible "STERLING". Circa 1940s.
