Edwardian 18ct, 18k, 750 Gold Romantic Sapphire & Pearl crescent stick, tie, cravat, lapel pin
Antique 18ct gold Sapphire and Pearl crescent moon stick pin featuring a crescent moon mounted with seven seed pearls and a flower mounted with three cabachon Sapphires and another tiny seed pearl in the leaf.
Stick pins were often worn at weddings, and no doubt this pin was worn by a groom on his wedding day, the crescent moon representing a new start (as he embarks on married life), the pearls for purity and Sapphires for faithfulness.
