This Late Victorian or Edwardian stick pin is marked for 18k white gold, and features a sparkling prong set diamond and a bright bezel set ruby at its tip. The vintage stick pin has a horseshoe draped around the diamond, with a filigree border and migraine detail around the perimeter of its teardrop shape; the square cut rubs is bezel set on an angle and hangs off the tip of the teardrop. There is a tremendous amount of detail in this small antique pin, and it is just so beautifully made, it would be a joy to wear. I could even see it pinned to the ribbons wrapping a bridal bouquet, as part of a unique "something old". I just love this stick pin!
Stick Pin Head: 17mm at its tallest point by 8mm
Stick Pin dimensions including pin back: 60mm at its tallest point by 8mm at its widest point
Diamond size: about 3mm in diameter in setting, round cut
Ruby Size: just under 3mm in diameter, measured from point to point in the bezel setting
Condition: I don't honestly think this has ever really been worn. There is no damage noted to the stick pin head, and the pin is totally straight and true. This is a wonderful vintage find!

Shipping costs are the cost of mailing an item, along with any necessary packing/packaging materials. If shipping costs seem high, sometimes they are. When estimating for the purposes of listing an item on Etsy, I have to list the most expensive possible shipping destination in a given country. More expensive items are shipped with tracking and insurance, which adds to the cost. If the difference between my shipping estimate and actual costs are greater than $2, I will refund you the difference.
If you are thinking of purchasing an item, contact me with your postal or mailing code, and I will check the precise shipping costs. For less expensive items (under $50), I am willing to ship by cheaper options, but please be aware that this can extend shipping times by 4 to 8 weeks for international shipping to some destinations, and can eliminate the ability to track or insurance the package.
In short, not turning a profit on postage, but need to cover the costs getting lovely jewellery from me to you!
