Laurels and Moonstone!

The classical elegance of a wreath of laurel leaves surrounding a luminous moonstone.  The laurel wreath is exquisitely crafted and detailed.  The moonstone is complemented by a small white pearl set below.  Crafted in 14kt gold,  circa 1900.

This stickpin was created by Whiteside & Blank, a maker of beautiful stickpins, brooches and other jewels during the early 1900s.  The maker's mark of the firm was an arrow piercing a crescent. The maker's mark is visible on the right side of the reverse of the stickpin (pictured below).  The maker's mark and is followed by "14" for the purity of the gold.

The stickpin is as beautifully crafted as it is designed.  Note the sturdy pin stem which is securely attached to the back of the solid gold wreath.

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 just over  2 3/8" long and weighs 2.3 grams.  The laurel wreath is  5/8" tall and  1/2" wide.
