ABOUT THIS BROOCH

A big ( 1 11/16 by 15/16 inch) beautiful bug (a ground beetle we think), glistens and glows in the center with an electric lime green demantoid garnet from the Ural Mountains of 19th-century Russia. Its body isn't green turquoise (which we thought at first), but a big marbled opaque cabochon emerald, or green beryl! Small bright white, old mine-cut diamonds sparkle throughout this striking and very precious pest, crafted in 15ct. gold, hence most likely of Victorian British origin - circa 1890 -1900.

Jewelry Care

As with anything of value, especially sentimental value, taking good care of your vintage and antique jewelry from Lang will enhance its beauty and extend its lifespan. We encourage you to have your jewelry checked and cleaned by us or by your trusted local jeweler every six months, to ensure that each piece is in good wearable condition with all gemstones in place. It’s not uncommon for stones to loosen over time, and it’s much easier to tighten a loose stone than to replace a lost one! As stated in our Repair Policy, we strongly recommend that you allow us to perform any repairs, since our jewelers are specialists in restoring vintage and antique jewelry.
