Dragon and Diamond
| A greedy dragon clutches an oversized diamond
in its outstretched maw. The beautiful sculpting and fine

of jewelers in the past. This elegant stickpin
was created by Carrington & Co. in 14kt gold,
The reverse of the stickpin (below) illustrates the care with which Carrington created its jewels. Note the sturdy pin stem which attaches to the back of the dragon with a strong collar. The maker's mark of Carrington & Co. (a boxy "C" enclosing "14") is stamped to the lower right of the collet securing the diamond. The diamond is an Old European cut weighing approximately 1/4 carat.
