This is an older gold stickpin circa 1920's or earlier with a nicely detailed head of an elk or stag accented by an old mine cut diamond approximately 1.2 mm across. This stickpin is unmarked but was tested as 14K for the elk's head and 10K for the pin stem itself. Total weight of piece is approximately 1.9 g. I have seen other stickpins similar to this marked with the BPOE logo but this one is of course unmarked. It would make a nice gift for someone who is a collector of animal motif jewelry or turn of the century pieces. There is a small rough spot on the tip of the pin which could be polished off if desired. I also note some roughness on the back of the elk's head. Please see photos for further information.
