1.30 ct Diamond and Pearl, Ruby and 9 ct Yellow Gold 'Dragonfly' Brooch - Antique Victorian


An impressive 1.30 carat diamond and pearl, 0.02 carat ruby and 9 carat yellow gold, silver set 'dragonfly' brooch; part of our diverse antique jewellery collections

SKU A7809

This fine and impressive antique brooch has been crafted in 9 ct yellow gold with a silver setting.

The brooch has been modelled in the form of a dragonfly.

The pierced decorated, paired wings are each embellished with twelve pavé set Dutch cut diamonds of various sizes.

The thorax of the dragonfly is ornamented with a 4.5mm natural pearl and a larger collet set Dutch cut diamond, the attached segmented abdomen is collet set with a further six graduated Dutch cut diamonds.

The dragonfly's legs and head are crafted in 9 ct yellow gold, set with two collet set cabochon cut rubies to represent the eyes.

The forelegs of the dragonfly are clutching a single silver collet set Old European round cut diamond.

The antique dragonfly brooch secures to the reverse with a 9 ct yellow gold hinged pin and clasp, and benefits from the additional security of a clip and fine link safety chain.

This antique Victorian insect brooch has been independently tested using state of the art technology (Niton XL2 Analyzer) and verified as 9 ct gold and silver.

The brooch is supplied with an independent diamond grading report card.
