Special stock drop of some fun figural antique pieces! : )

Oh those clever Victorians and their wonderful, whimsical figural jewelry! Thank heavens for them!
Here we have a fabulous and bug brooch that also works as a pendant that is set with an emerald at the center, little ruby eyes and rose cut diamonds at the body and wings.

The Victorians were fascinated with nature and also with jewelry, and we see some wonderful designs come from the period incorporating both of these delights. This one is some sort of winged insect - if I could identify exactly which, we could probably figure out if the motif represented anything, as the figural pieces of the Victorian era often held a symbolism. It has tendencies of a bee, hornet, bug, fly, dragonfly or moth. Feel free to message me your vote : )

The piece hangs cutely on a chain but if desired, your local jeweler could remove the pin back and add a permanent loop for permanent conversion to a pendant. It also has a little loop down at the bottom where you could hang an additional charm or pendant.

No hallmarks remain that I could find. 18k gold topped in a white precious metal.

Please note the measurements as I have small fingers and it can be difficult to determine scale from pictures. Some of my buyers "draw out" an example to get an idea of scale in person.

Antique Boxes, props, chains, mice : ) not included.


22mm x 15mm. It weighs 3g.


The emerald is abraided and has a matte finish but a beautiful green color. Typical antique rose cuts with some frosty hues and rough cuts.

Please note that all my pieces are pre-owned and in estate condition. They will have patina, surface wear, a few small nicks. These pieces may also have evidence of a sizing, some build up around the stones and / or inclusions seen under magnification, typical for antique pieces. I have mentioned any noticeable issues above and they are all still wearable and eager to be loved and accepted for many years to come, (the preservation of antique jewelry, even those with signs of their age and history, is important to me. : )
But - Please note due to age, this piece is not in mint condition. Pictures also serve as part of the description and condition report so please utilize the zoom feature which will magnify any wear significantly more than what is visible to the eye while wearing : )

Striking to wear with the figural shape. Due to age, I would avoid getting it wet.

I would be delighted if you'd follow me in my shop. Thanks for stopping by!
