Victorian 14K Yellow Gold, Amethyst and Seed Pearl Stickpin - D. Wilcox & Co. - Signed 14WX #d141
This superb stickpin was created by the D. Wilcox and Co. jewelry company, which was founded in 1856 by Dutee Wilcox in Providence, RI. It is comprised of fine 14K yellow gold, amethyst stone and pearl. It features a wonderful open, shield-shaped top with ornate scrolls at the top and bottom. The center of the pin holds a bezel-set trillion, or triangular cut, faceted amethyst stone with a fabulous deep purple color. The center of the scrolls at the bottom has been accented with a white seed pearl that has been set into a tall prong setting that sits up high off the pin. The back of the pin and the stone setting are open, allowing maximum light to reach and enhance the gorgeous purple of the amethyst. It's a stunning piece!

The stickpin measures about 2 1/2 inches long, 3/8 inch wide and weighs 1.7 grams. It is marked "14WX" on the back of the head of the pin, which is the 14K maker's mark for jewelers D. Wilcox & Co. of Rhode Island. The amethyst stone is approximately 6.5mm/0.91 carat weight in size. It tested in the amethyst range on a Presidium gem tester. The pin does not include a clutch.

Pieces by D. Wilcox don't come up very often, making this a rare and exquisite find. The bright yellow gold and purple amethyst stone in this piece make for a strikingly beautiful combination. It would make an exceptional addition to an antique jewelry collection and a very fine gift. The stickpin is in excellent antique condition and ready to wear!
