An 18ct yellow gold and diamond dragon stick pin from the Edwardian period. The ornate dragon is incredibly detailed, with feathered wings and sinuous pointed tail. The bold flowing lines seen here display strong elements of Art Nouveau, which regularly featured these mystical creatures. The reputation of the dragon as a protector of precious diamonds is seen here, with the sparkling rub over set 0.50ct antique cushion cut example it grasps in its mouth. The fantastical dragon featured prominently during the period, with a particularly strong affiliation in England, with Saint George famously taming and slaying a dragon. Stick pins were regularly worn by gentlemen during the period to secure the wide neckties that were in fashion. Often presented to mark special occasions by relatives and loved ones, they were highly treasured. The Russian Tsar Nicholas II (1868-1917) received countless numbers of stick pins, which were all meticulously recorded in watercolours in his comprehensive jewel album.
The Edwardian period only lasted for nine years (1901-1910), but it was an incredibly important era for jewellery design. Hugely intricate pieces, showcasing the very best diamonds and gemstones, were worn with elaborate fashions from the most famous French couture houses. Driven by the explosion of court life, steered by the fashion conscious King Edward VII and Queen Alexandra, this was a truly special time.
