The 18ct yellow gold body is accented with a beautiful sparkling white old cut diamond measuring approx. 25ct bezel set and a further 16 small diamonds. The wings are 18ct gold veined plique a jour enamel in different tones of brown and culminating in a creamy pink on the tip of the wings where two beautiful cabachon pink red rubies are set. The eyes of the dragonfly are, I believe white agate. The dragonfly is positioned on a solid 18ct gold screw fitting bar which enables movement.
This brooch is in wonderful condition with all the enamel intact and we kept it's lovely natural patina finish. Dimensions, from wing to wing 5.50 cm x 3 cm. Original plique a jour jewellery is rare and the quality of this piece does set it apart from other pieces I have seen on offer and this is why I bought it.
