Brassler Amethyst Stickpin

Amethyst Moth

A jeweled moth or exotic winged creature is crafted in gold and set with a vibrant amethyst and small diamond.  This insectomorphic (insect-inspired) stickpin was created by Hans Brassler in 14kt gold, circa 1910.

Hans Brassler was a wonderfully imaginative jeweler/artist who in the early 1900s created a small  menagerie of insectomorphic jewels.  This elegant example features a purple amethyst set as the body between two wings sweeping downward along the sides.  Beneath the wings the creature's legs  cradle a small sparkling diamond. 

Finely crafted in 14kt gold, this elegant stickpin is secured with a sturdy pin stem when worn.  The maker's mark of The Brassler Company ("14B" surrounded by a double oval) is stamped on the lower left reverse.

Cost:  $475

Measurements:  The top of this stickpin measures just over 1/2" by  1/2".  The stickpin is 2 1/2" long and weighs 2.0 grams.
