ABOUT THIS BROOCH

Aah, the alluring anisoptera--commonly known as the dragonfly--is a most fascinating creature. It has 360-degree vision, can fly in any direction, and is able to live for years underwater. And, there are some very rare species--like this one. With a body that shimmers with twinkling round brilliant-cut diamonds (plus a few rose-cuts on his face), gossamer-like wings (that move!) of golden plique a jour enamel, and a ruby-topped head and sapphire eyes, he's ready to fly--backwards if necessary--straight to your collection of fabulous jewels. Total diamond weight - .51 carat, total gemstone weight - .96 carat. In 18K two-tone gold. Wingspan is 2 /12 inches.

About Estate Jewelry

Though it calls to mind grand manor houses in the English countryside, “estate” is just a fancy way of describing any piece of jewelry with a previous owner. That’s pretty much everything in our collection. We tend to use “estate” to refer to pieces in our collection with a more modern or contemporary design, or vintage-inspired designs. These perennial gems are selected in harmony with our original antique and vintage pieces…they’re just a little bit younger!

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.
