SOLD - 1.22 ct Opal and 0.10 ct Ruby, 9 ct Yellow Gold 'Spider' Brooch - Antique Circa 1900


This fine and impressive bar brooch has been crafted in 9 ct yellow gold in the form of a spider.

The thorax of the spider is ornamented with a collet set 0.10 ct round cut natural ruby.

The abdomen displays a feature collet set 1.22ct opal cabochon.

The collet settings of both gemstones are accented with millegrain decoration.

The spider has eight realistically modelled legs and is set diagonally to the centre of the plain bar brooch.

The brooch secures to the reverse with a hinged pin and clasp and benefits from the additional security of a fine link safety chain.

This antique 1900's brooch has been independently tested using state of the art technology (Niton XL2 Analyzer) and verified as 9 ct yellow gold.

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


This impressive spider brooch is fine quality set with a natural ruby and opal.

The brooch is a very good gauge of gold and is in excellent condition.

Reflections in photographs may detract from the true representation of this fine example of antique jewellery/estate jewelry.
