A Late Victorian Yellow Gold And Diamond Caduceus Brooch

Description

A late Victorian yellow gold and diamond Caduceus brooch, the winged staff white claw-set throughout with old brilliant-cut and rose-cut diamonds, a natural pearl raised to the centre, two diamond-set serpents entwined around the staff, all white claw set to an open back yellow mount with brooch fittings, circa 1890, approximate length 57 x 20mm, gross weight 7.7 grams

A beautifully detailed late Victorian brooch. This brooch forms the symbol of the Caduceus, the staff carried by Hermes in Greek mythology. The brooch is comprised of a yellow gold staff with a diamond and pearl base, two intertwined snakes curled around the staff set throughout with diamonds, and the top of the staff, which features wings set with further diamonds and pearls. This symbol has held many associations throughout history but most especially is associated with the medical profession. This delicate and beautifully designed brooch would add eye-catching sparkle to a cravat or jacket lapel.
