Art Nouveau Sapphire Stickpin

Sapphire and Pearl

A bright blue sapphire and luminous pearl are set amid elegant goldwork wedding Art Nouveau curves with Gothic geometry.  The sharp angles and openness of the design recall the stone tracery surrounding stained glass windows in Medieval cathedrals.  Created by Frank Krementz Co. in 14kt gold, circa 1910.

Frank Krementz was one of the brothers who founded Krementz & Co. after the Civil War.  Around 1910 he decided to follow his own direction and founded Frank Krementz Company.  Over the next several decades his firm created artistically unique cufflinks, stickpins and other jewels.  The firm was known for the beauty of its designs and fineness of its craftsmanship.

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

Measurements:  This 14kt gold stickpin is 2 9/16" long and the top measures 3/4" long by  just over 3/8" wide.  The stickpin weighs 1.7 grams.

The photograph below illustrates the care with which this stickpin was crafted.  The maker's mark of Frank Krementz Company (a reversed "F" abutting a "K") and a gold purity mark "14" are stamped on the lower reverse.  The marks are partially obscured by the pin stem.
