ABOUT THIS BROOCH

There are over 5,000 species of dragonflies, but we suspect that this one, hailing from the Edwardian era (early 20th century), is in a class of its own. With a 2 1/4 inch wingspan and a body composed of glorious cobalt-blue sapphires topped with a glistening .75 carat cherry-red ruby, its wings and head are ready to add sparkle to its flight courtesy of 24 scintillating and full-of-fire old mine-cut diamonds (total weight, 4.15 carats). Its tiny green glass eyes are looking for a place to alight--your lapel, perhaps? Total sapphire weight, 4.77 carats. Hand fabricated in platinum over 14K gold.

About Edwardian Jewelry

Edwardians took the dark beauty of Victorian jewelry and dyed it platinum blonde. Light and airy filigree, worked with intricate millegrain and detailed designs in that durable metal, was liberally set with the “white” stones—pearls and diamonds chief among them. The Victorians’ sense of whimsy and beloved yellow gold didn’t disappear completely, though, even as the Edwardian era made way for the further-streamlined Art Deco.

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.
