This is one insect which will never bug you with an annoying sound or take a nip out of you. Just pin it on and your cares will fly off into the sunset. A most fabulous Edwardian brooch is rendered in silver and 18k yellow gold.
With Art Nouveau ever searching for nature in all things, a dragonfly takes on the visage of courage, change, prosperity and strength. Valued characteristics by people of many cultures, dragonflies have been known to impart a sense of peacefulness and love from those who have left this mortal coil.
Here precious jewels and metals take charge and are magically transformed into this flying wonder with two (2) round faceted ruby eyes of a total of .20 carats, an 18k yellow gold head armed with antennae and a .20 carat cushion cut emerald thorax.
The wings of silver encrusted with thirteen (13) old single cut diamonds can set the creature into flight while balanced by a 1 carat oval cabochon white opal which takes on the role of a chubby little abdomen.
Golden legs grasp onto a thin gold branch which blossoms with silver leaves set with ten (10) additional old single cut diamonds and a faceted oval ruby berry of .45 carats. In all, twenty-six (26) old single cut diamonds with a total weight of .45 carats (J-K color; SI1-3 clarity) give off enough sparkle and shine to light the way.
