ABOUT THIS BROOCH

For a lack of the proper entomological nomenclature, this unidentified flying insect, artfully designed and hand fabricated in velvety 18K yellow gold, sparkles in the center with a bright-white European-cut diamond weighing .50 carat. Her open double wings are tipped with small rubies, sapphires, emeralds and diamonds, and her eyes and tail are set with rubies. 1 5/8 inch wingspan, 1 1/8 inch high. French Makers Marks

About Mid-Century Jewelry

Mid-Century jewelers gave the Victorians a run for their money when it came to variety—with the added bonus of big, bold gems in every shape, size, and color. Themes of previous eras were made fabulous enough to match the optimism of the post-war world. Transitional pieces bridged the gap between the first and second half of the 20th century.

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.
