Description


This stunning, fine and impressive antique pendant/brooch has been crafted in yellow metal and silver.


The pendant brooch has been modelled in the form of a butterfly.


The pierced decorated forewings are embellished with three cabochon cut opals to the outer margins.


The shaped basal's of the forewings, and shaped sub margins of the hindwings are ornamented with further individually set cabochon cut opals.


The pierced decorated wings are embellished with a total of twenty-four diamonds, in a combination of mine and Dutch cuts.


The butterfly's thorax is accented with a claw set round faceted cut sapphire, surmounted with two further sapphires representing the eyes.


The abdomen displays three impressive claw set cabochon cut opals, graduating in size.


The pendant suspends from a contemporary 18ct yellow gold 18" curb chain via an integrated ring loop, securing to the reverse with a conventional spring-loaded bolt ring.


This versatile pendant may also be worn as a brooch, via a detachable hinged pin and C shaped clasp fastening to the reverse of the setting.


This impressive antique butterfly pendant has been independently tested using state of the art technology (Niton XL2 Analyzer) and verified as silver.


This stunning Victorian brooch is supplied with an independent diamond and gemstone grading report card.


This combination of gemstones is rare for this style of brooch; this, in addition to the detachable brooch fitment, indicates the high quality of the piece.


Images do not always reflect the true colour and brilliance of gemstones and diamonds. The video however provides a truer representation of the actual colour and showcases each stone.
