Saturday Sparkle: The Bettine Diamond and Pearl Buckle, c. 1910

The Victoria and Albert Museum

From the collection of "The Bettine," Lady Abingdon, we have this handsome buckle of ebonite, gold, silver, pearls and diamonds.

Made circa 1900-1910, this buckle pin probably heralds from the United States.  It's the sort of pin which would have adorned a lady's jacket, or even her shoes, worn in pairs.
