Story

Russian in origin, this circa 1890 brooch wows with its encrustation of gemstones and diamonds.

From its wings represented by natural rubies and glinting, rose cut diamonds, to its body of a natural pearl and more diamonds, it is a glorious rendition of an insect brooch.

Two natural sapphires serve as eyes, the middle section of the body is dotted with six more rubies. And at the tip of the linear brooch, sits an oval olive and lime green peridot.

Larger is scale than most, it is easy to imagine a Russian dignitary, royal or a woman of nobility with this adorning her shoulder. The brooch dates to what is considered the Imperial Russian era when the Czar and Czarina were still in power.
