Stickpin, Cartier, c.1910
Sapphire, emerald and amethyst
a platinum pin topped with a inverted tear shaped pinnacle, centred with a pear shaped blue sapphire within a border of calibré cut emeralds, the outer edge set with calibré amethysts, mounted in yellow gold.
Presented in its original tear shaped tooled green leather case, stamped ‘CARTIER’ with initials ‘H.F.E’.
The distinctive design with its striking combination of colours is most likely based on the eye of a peacock feather.
