General Information:

  • Total Carat Weight:  1.23 ctw
  • Precious Metal Weight:  2.91 dwt/0.145 ozt
  • Precious Metal Material:  On our shop's digital testers, the floral component tests for sterling silver topped 16-18k rose gold, the knife edge bar brooch tests for 12-14k yellow gold, and the stem pin tests for 10-12k rose gold
  • Dimensions:  55.85 mm end to end; 6.29 mm from stem pin (back) to top of knife edge (front); flower element is 6.80 mm deep x 13.35 north to south x 13.34 east to west
  • Weight: 4.52 grams
  • Markings:  Unmarked, but tested for purity
  • Era:  Circa 1870 at the height of the Mid Victorian era during what is known as The Grand Period
  • Buyer Notes:  After well over a century of life, the locking c-clasp closure is somewhat sticky and must be manually pressed shut. If not pushed, it may wiggle around a bit, but once pressed shut, it is very securely closed in place. If so desired, the stickiness may be very easily remedied by the next caretaker's preferred jeweler post-purchase, though its presence does not affect the pin's usability as it is. There is some verdigris present to the pin's reverse where the floral component has been fit to the knife edge bar brooch.

    The Story:

    The central gemmy floral component likely began life as a button-- possibly quite early, circa 1840-1850 or so-- and if so, would have originally been one of a set of at least two. 

    This flower emblem is believed to depict a Chrysanthemum bloom, as there are 16 petals present. The Victorian era's iconic book titled 'The Language of Flowers' is a floriography of floral cryptological meanings which was regarded as the authority on the secret messages that flowers can convey. In this reference book, the white Chrysanthemum is symbolic of truthfulness, the red Chrysanthemum signifies devoted love, and the yellow Chrysanthemum speaks of slighted affection. On a simpler note, this may very well be perceived as a stylized daisy bloom, in which case its symbolism is charmingly less sophisticated; daisies represent childlike and innocent joy.

    At one point in its history, the featured floral bit was converted into a brooch, set within the knife-edge bar pin, the styling of which dates to between 1890 and 1900. Today, this brooch is just as wearable, kissed by the patina of time and cheerful in its display. This pin is perfect for the lapel or collar and equally attractive when worn either horizontally or vertically.

    By placing an order, you accept and agree to uphold Revival Fine Jewelry's terms, conditions and policies.

    Regarding All Purchases: All additional 'prop' jewelry boxes, ring boxes, or any other jewelry items pictured alongside the featured listing are for photographic and display purposes only and are not included in the transaction unless explicitly noted in the listing description and/or title. Your order will be carefully packed within a branded Revival Fine Jewelry gift box and will ship in a discreet outer shipping parcel.

    Regarding Sale Purchases: Items purchased while on sale and/or sold at specially discounted rates negotiated and agreed upon by Revival Fine Jewelry and a designated consumer are considered final sale. Sale and discounted items are nonreturnable, nonrefundable and ineligible for layaway.

    Regarding Brooches & Pins: Often significantly and curiously undervalued jewelry items, brooches, pins and stick pins are treasured pieces of history in this shop. Accordingly, their pricing is calculated analogous to other fine jewelry, including their symbolic meaning, rarity and historical prestige. Such pieces are typically converted to other forms of jewelry, and are therefore becoming increasingly rare in their original states. Aside from being perfectly wearable as sophisticated lapel ornaments, brooches and pins of all kinds are prime candidates for many kinds of fine jewelry conversions, including rings, earrings, pendants, and charms, if so desired by the consumer post-purchase. Revival Fine Jewelry does not perform conversion projects for customers.

    Regarding Storage & Boxes: All specifications, including but not limited to the measurements, age, origins, and material compositions are supplied in good faith as professional estimations constructed using professional grade tools, years of learned and honed skills, educational resources and academic scholarship, and refined research methods. Regardless of our confidence in our descriptions and the photographs deemed viable extensions of these descriptions, we cannot guarantee the definitiveness, faultlessness, or exactitude beyond our knowledge and expertise. Kindly keep in mind that this and all items are sold as-is vintage, antique and estate secondhand wares, and consequently bear conditional wear in matter and operation commensurate with age and use.

    Layaway is available for full priced, non-sale items priced $600.00 USD or greater, and items may not be combined to attain price-eligibility. Plans are offered as 3-month/90-day maximum terms.

    In exchange for offering interest-free plans, customers agree to abide and uphold the following nonnegotiable terms and conditions:

    • A 30% non-refundable deposit is due upfront to reserve the item for layaway and pull it from public sale on all of our shopping platforms. Shipping expenses are added to this first payment unless otherwise requested.

    • The remaining 70% balance is divided up into three subsequent monthly payments due on the same day of the following three months. If deliquent, a $20.00 USD late fee is added per day to an overdue payment until paid.

     In the event that a layaway installment is left unpaid for seven (7) days and no communication is received from the designated customer, the layaway plan will be presumed abandoned. While the item will be returned to public sale, all payments made hitherto are still considered final.

    Layaway items are promptly boxed and shipped to the designated customer once the final payment successfully processes. Taxes, import and other legal fees are not calculated into the payments, and are the sole responsibility of the customer, whether a domestic US or international buyer. Revival Fine Jewelry is not responsible for calculating, covering or adding such costs into purchase prices.

    All layaway payments as well as all items purchased through layaway plans are considered final sale; neither payments nor items may be refunded, transferred, exchanged or returned. Revival Fine Jewelry does not issue store credit.

    Revival Fine Jewelry reserves the right to cancel any layaway plan at any point for any reason if fraudulant activity is suspected. In this event, the designated customer will be notified prior to the intended cancellation of their plan.
