ABOUT THIS BROOCH

Bees usually have six legs, but with one as beautiful as this, a little artistic license is allowed. The body of this captivating insect gleams with a lustrous pear-shaped blister pearl and its wings are aglitter with old mine cuts, as it buzzes from flower to flower--or, more fittingly, from outfit to outfit--keeping watch with round ruby eyes. Total diamond weight, 1.15 carats. Hand fabricated in silver over 14K gold with a 10k pin stem, it measures 1 3/4 by 1 1/8 inches.n Once upon a time this bee had more findings as the pin mechanism is removable. It most likely was a hairpin. Sadly it only has the pin stem now.

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.
