Magical Antique Diamond Dragon Brooch
This exquisite diamond, emerald and ruby brooch is in the form of a late neo- Renaissance era flying dragon. Powerful themes were pulled from historical periods including the Gothic, Etruscan and Greek eras. Among them, the evocative Renaissance period with its mermen, mythological creatures and fanciful designs. Here we see a combination of the revival, yet interpreted in diamonds in a new way - almost Beaux Arts in feel, but not so in its more costly materials.
The silver over 14k yellow gold mille grain decorated setting is embellished with a ruby eye, one hundred forty-six (146) rose cut diamonds (more than 1.5 carats in total estimated diamond weight) and thirty-six (36) vibrantly green emeralds accentuating the curved lines of the wings of the dragon. Clutched within its powerful jaws in the form of a lance, our benevolent dragon holds a removable natural ruby-tipped pin ready to be worn in conjunction with or separately from the winged wonder.
Measurements: 2-7/8 inches (7.3 cm) in length not including extra pin length (7.3 cm) by 1-5/16 inches (3.3 cm) at the widest.
Condition: Excellent; one replaced rose cut diamond; a tad bit of bending to the removable gold and ruby pin.
Date: Circa 1900
Overall Scale: Large to very large.
Note: All diamond weights are approximate since the stones were not removed from their mounts to preserve the integrity of the setting.
