Three antique lapel pins with pearls & diamonds, 1890s to 1920s

As big and rich as the world of jewellery is - for men there are only a few objects that can be harmonized with a classic wardrobe. A ring is opportune, cufflinks too, of course. But after that, it quickly becomes difficult to maintain the balance between individuality and good taste. The lapel pin is one of the few exceptions here, which is able to accompany the formal wardrobe as well as to give a special touch to the rather less formal suit or even just a casually worn jacket. In earlier times often worn on the plastron or the tie, numerous beautiful examples from all conceivable eras and styles have been preserved here. Here now is a small collection of three gold pins whose period of origin covers a span of about 30 years. We see a large pin with a showpiece that features diamond roses, a pearl and two rubies. It was probably made in the 1890s. Next, we see a pin with a beveled showpiece of a natural pearl flanked by two beautiful old cut diamonds. The third pin shows a single, early cultured pearl and was probably made around 1925. The needles are all beautifully preserved. They reached us together and we therefore decided to offer them together: As a nice way to be prepared for many occasions with three at one go.
