Arts & Crafts Bloodstone Stickpin

Heliotrope!


A striking heliotrope, or bloodstone, set in a distinctive Arts & Crafts stickpin.  The stickpin reflects the influence of Medieval design on Victorian and later jewelry makers.  Crafted in 14kt gold,  circa 1910

The early Arts & Crafts movement in Britain drew significant inspiration from the craftsmanship and designs of the Middle Ages.  The cruciform-shape of the stickpin and bloodstone reflect the Victorian interest in the symbols and spirituality of the earlier period.

The stickpin was beautifully crafted by The Brassler Company, a maker of fine stickpins.  Note the sturdy pin stem which is securely attached to the gold back.

Cost:  Although this elegant stickpin has sold,  you will find many more beautiful stickpins in the Antique Stickpin Gallery.

Measurements:  This 14kt gold stickpin is 2 5/8" long and weighs 2.7 grams.  The cruciform top measures  5/8"by   5/8".
