A Demantoid Garnet And Diamond Dragonfly Brooch
A demantoid garnet and diamond brooch by Bentley & Skinner, in the form of a dragonfly, the en tremblant wings and body encrusted with old brilliant-cut diamonds weighing a total of 6.91 carats, and round faceted dematoid garnets weighing a total of 3.91 carats, mounted in silver and yellow gold, hallmarked 18ct gold and silver, London, 2021, made by Bentley & Skinner, measuring approximately 7.2 x 8.5cm, gross weight 34 grams.
A spectacular brooch. This piece draws inspiration from Victorian insect brooches of a similar style, impressive in size and set throughout with diamonds and colourful stones. Bright and mossy green demantoid garnets encrust the body of the dragonfly and meet lively and sparkling diamonds to encrust the wings. The wings are set “en tremblant”, meaning “to tremble”. Small springs allow the wings to quiver and move delicately with every movement the wearer makes, bringing this magnificent piece to life. A fabulous and bright statement piece.
