An Art Nouveau era amethyst and enamel brooch crafted by Newark, NJ maker Sloan & Co in 14K gold. The central amethyst displays a pretty lilac color and weighs approximately 10 carats. It is surrounded by a beautifully patterned steely purple and white guilloche enamel. The border of the pin has an almost Celtic knot design - intricate and dimensional. The back of the pin is marked “14” for 14K gold purity as well as the maker’s mark for Sloan & Co. We love this piece on a jacket lapel, sweater, or converted into an evil eye style necklace!
