Sapphire and Diamond, Pearl and 15ct Yellow Gold 'Insect' Brooch - Antique Victorian


A fine and impressive antique Victorian 0.04 carat diamond and 0.05 carat natural blue sapphire, seed pearl and 15 carat yellow gold brooch in the form of a winged insect; part of our antique jewellery and estate jewelry collections

SKU A4815

This fine and impressive Victorian bar brooch has been crafted in 15ct yellow gold.

The two parallel bars, ornamented with seed pearl terminals, display a stylised winged insect to the centre.

The insect's four wings are embellished with fourteen seed pearls of various sizes.

The thorax of the insect is ornamented with a collet set round mixed cut natural blue sapphire, and the abdomen displays a larger seed pearl.

The head of this impressive insect brooch is further accented with two collet set old Dutch cut diamonds.

This 1900s bar brooch secures to the reverse with a hinged pin and clasp fastening and benefits from the additional security of a fine link chain and safety clip.

This antique brooch has been independently tested using state of the art technology (Niton XL2 Analyzer) and verified as 15ct gold.

The insect brooch is supplied with an IDGL diamond grading report card.

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.

This antique gold brooch is fine quality set with a natural blue sapphire and very high colour graded old cut diamonds.

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 Victorian jewellery/estate jewelry.
