A pretty Art Nouveau honeymoon pin worked in 14K yellow gold enhanced with enamel and a small diamond. The violet blossom is worked in shades of purple, ivory and maroon opaque enamels. The edges of the petals are finished in a repousse gold border in the style often seen on Larter enamels. The flower is centered with a 3-pt prong-set old European cut diamond. The exposed gold surfaces have the soft, slightly matte Russian finish. In the Victorian language of flowers, these elements were understood to symbolize “honey” (the flower) and “moon” (the crescent), thus representing “honeymoon”. These small pins were often given by grooms to their new brides as a wedding gift. The original clasp is stamped with Larter’s hallmark and is marked “14K”.

Origin: America, ca. 1900. Conditino: excellent, no enamel damage. Size: 1-1/16” x 9/16”. Weight: 2.0 grams.
