Delicate as lace

Finely crafted stick pin with natural pearl & diamonds, circa 1910

The baton pin was one of the most popular pieces of jewellery of the early 20th century and could be found in the jewellery wardrobe of every well-endowed lady. From daytime specimens, in gold and set with pearls or colourful gemstones, to quality diamond pins for the evening - the stick brooch took many forms. The brooch here is a representative of this type, which pays homage to the aesthetics of the late Belle Époque. Delicate, lace-like designs were beloved in the early years of the still-young 20th century, white-lit in platinum on gold. At the center of the design is a rosette of slender platinum bars that sets eight old-cut diamonds and sets a central natural bouton pearl. Outwardly, the design becomes narrower as it swings out, then each ends in a large diamond. Its noble, white design with a rich diamond setting once predestined the pin for festive evening jewelry. You could wear it to dinner or to a gala. Today these rules have been abolished and what is allowed is what pleases. The pin can also be worn on the lapel of a blazer or coat in a modern way.
