Victorian Hand Carved Labradorite and Garnet Devil Stick Pin

$2,875

About

A fabulous labradorite stick pin from the Victorian (ca1880) era! This unique piece consists of a labradorite devil's head at the top of a 15kt rose gold stick pin. The 3-dimensional carving displays incredible facial features, including two pointed horns, a furrowed brow, and long nose. Two sparkling red garnets represent its eyes, and a long, gold tongue dangles sideways out of a grinning mouth. The labradorite exhibits a marvelous grey-green color, with soft iridescent properties and a smoothly polished finish. When turned in the light, it reveals vivid flashes of color, including bright blue, green, and deep violet. The carving is attached to a long, straight stick pin, with several twisted details at the center. A fantastic antique piece, it would make a special addition to any collection! The stickpin measures 3 3/8" in total length. The carved labradorite devil's head measures 7/8" tall, 1/2" wide, and 3/8" thick.
