ABOUT THIS BROOCH

This incredible insect flies through the air with the greatest of ease, aided in no small part by a 3 3/4-inch wingspan and a gracefully curving tail set with a glittering array of rose-cut diamond dew drops. A deep blue .75-carat oval sapphire and a bright European-cut give shape to its body, while two glimmering, vibrant red ruby eyes help this winged wonder find its way through the sky. Our expert entomologist tell us it's from the Victoriana sparkling species, circa 1890. Total diamond weight, 5.55 carats. Hand fabricated in silver over 14K gold.

About Victorian Jewelry

The eclectic Victorians didn’t limit themselves when it came to motifs and themes—if it struck their fancy, they turned it into jewelry. Sweet and sentimental with a distinct romantic streak, Victorian gems expanded upon their Georgian predecessors. The array of styles that blossomed (sometimes quite literally) during this era endure to this day.

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.
