This elegant antique silver stick pin is made from Whitby Jet, an ancient mineral gemstone found in and around the cliffs in Whitby, a seaside hamlet in England famed for producing the best quality jet in the world. Just imagine wearing a 180 million year old gemstone on your lapel, tie or cravat!
A classic piece of personalised Victorian jewellery, the pin is elaborately engraved with the initials 'TWL' that are incorporated into the carved jet fretwork beautifully detailed pattern. A sturdy gauge sterling silver stick pin with a shield shaped head completes this lovely example of the old Whitby jet carvers art.
This stick pin is in very good antique condition with very small minor chips to the edges that aren't particularly noticeable to the eye due to the intricate carving and deep black colour. Please see the close-up photos.
The pin stem measures 3"/ 6cm long (the jet head measures 22x16mm and 7mm deep) and the pin weighs 2.4 grams.
A versatile and very decorative piece of affordable antique Whitby jet jewellery and a lovely accent accessory, good for the gents or the ladies!
