Victorian Stickpin with Baroque Pearl

The art of creating whimsical jewels inspired by an irregularly-shaped baroque pearl began during the Rennaisance era (ca. 1500).   The tradition re-emerged during the Victorian period, and is now being explored by some of today's creative jewelry designers.

This wonderful late Victorian stickpin (ca. 1900) showcases a fine baroque pearl set as the flame in a burning torch.   The miniature torchére holding the pearl is beautifully crafted in 15kt gold.   The jewel is not hallmarked (not unusual for stickpins), but the artistry of the design and the precision of the execution indicates a jeweller who truly loved and appreciated his work.

Whether you are carrying an inextinguisable torch for someone special, are an Olympics aficionado, or just have a burning desire to own beautifully designed antique jewels, our torch stickpin is sure to light up your jewelry collection.

Cost:  Sold

Measurements:   This striking 15kt gold stickpin is 3.0" long.   The torch and flame, by themselves, are 1.0".
