Lady Bug Guilloché Enamel Brooch
You will not want this lady bug to fly away. In the guise of an 18k yellow gold brooch clip, this lady bug will bring you luck for all the years forward. The term clip was first used during the 1920s to describe a decorative piece of jewelry similar to that of a pin or brooch. Clips were fastened to all manner of clothing and even attached to hats, handbags and belts for that perfect detail accent.
Crafted by those masterful Italian goldsmiths, this realistic little sweetheart showcases guilloché enamel work of deep red and black. In this type of enamel decoration, a tool is used to incise fine lines over a metal background and then coated with enamel. The lines under the translucent enamel layer give depth to the composition and increase the visual effect. The reverse displays the clip fittings which consist of a pair of pointed prongs.
