Stamped 14K. Believe its early 20th C. Two aquamarine stones, and a pearl. Has anyone seen one like this before? Having a go trying to identify it. Thank you in advance if you have information!

    Hi there. The stick pin dates to the Edwardian, early Art Deco era, circa 1915. It is likely set with lab-created sapphire, not aquamarines, as was common in the era.

    It is not a Masonic piece however - just decorative and pleasing in terms of design. Men wore stick pins to secure their cravats, but when the modern tie came along, the style died out unfortunately.

    This piece was made by Krementz & Co. of Newark, New Jersey. They were a very upscale company at the time, and pieces by them are desirable due to the quality. In terms of pricing, I think that $250 is a fair value.
