This pretty stickpin features a lovely square-cut tourmaline (said to aid in self confidence and compassion). It is surrounded by a Nouveau framework in gold, with a Tudor or wild rose below. A little white pearl completes it. It is marked 14k, with an illegible maker’s mark. It measures 1/2” x 5/8" and the whole thing is 2-1/2" long. It weighs 2.9g including the gold-filled clutch. In excellent condition and C. 1900.
The Tudor rose is a combination of the white rose of York and the red rose of Lancaster, symbolizing the union of the 2 houses and the end of the War of the Roses. In the language of flowers a wild rose symbolizes simplicity.
