A 19thC 15k garnet pearls stickpin cravat or tie pin in a case. This 2-3/8" pin has a flower style 3/8" head with a deep ruby red garnet surrounded by pearls. It is unmarked but tests as 15k and the gold is slightly rose in colour. The pin is Victorian in style with the twisted shaft inserted into a ring on the head however the fitted hinged case has the Goldsmiths & Silversmiths Company Ltd. mark used after 1898 with the Appointment to the King legend which would make it Edwardian. It's possible the pin is older than the case but it could also be contemporary to it (c1901) even though it has an older Victorian manufacturing style. We obtained them together and that's how we're selling them. The case is velvet and silk lined with a gold maker's stamp. This lovely pin is in excellent condition with no chips, cracks, dents, bends, corrosion, damage or repairs other than some minor rubs to the black leather wrapped gold trimmed case. It can be re-blacked with shoe polish if you want. All items are thoroughly and conservatively graded and all condition issues are noted; all items are vintage or antique and may have slight signs of gentle use.
