    A Royal cypher cravat pin, diamonds and gold which was once the property of Prince Alfred, son of Queen Victoria and at one point 2nd in line for the throne.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alfred,_Duke_of_Saxe-Coburg_and_Gotha

    Whats interesting about this pin is that at the back is a spur, you can't see it from this picture, but the spur acts to lift the cravat to create more of a plume. thus the stick itself is quite long.

    Sometimes these are worn when riding, although I personally think thats a bit dangerous!

    The design is gothic, and there was a resurgence of that look in the latter Victorian period.

    Size wise, it is quite big.. 3/4 on an inch... in diametre.

    Thank you all for your interest..
