An Edwardian Amethyst And Pearl Dragonfly Brooch
An Edwardian amethyst and pearl dragonfly brooch, with faceted amethyst-set thorax and abdomen and seed pearl set wings, the eyes set with pearls, all to a yellow gold mount, circa 1900, measuring 2.5×5.4cm, gross weight 7.5 grams.
This delightful brooch was made at the turn of the twentieth century and is in the form of a detailed and colourful dragonfly. The thorax and abdomen of the insect are set with vivid faceted amethyst stones. The wings and legs are crafted from yellow gold set with lustrous seed pearls, both which provide a beautiful and bright contrast to the amethyst. This pretty piece would look lovely pinned to a floral dress.
