Nature often inspired Art Nouveau jewelry, and this sparkling dragonfly brooch is no exception! During this era of artistry, dragonfly motifs grew in popularity and ended up on dresses, rings, hair pins, and necklaces. Dragonflies signify the embracing of change, as they can swoop, fly, vanish, and dart in the blink of an eye. They’re a graceful creature, that has been known to bring peace to those who have recently lost a loved one. This pin would stand out on the lapels of a white jacket, or function fashionably on the ends of a warm scarf.
This antique Art Nouveau ruby and diamond dragonfly brooch was handcrafted in France around 1900. The glittery wings and winking eyes are made up of 28 rose cut diamonds, while the body is made of eight faceted deep pink rubies. All of the gemstones are silver set and backed in 18 karat gold. This piece is hallmarked with the French gold purity content mark of an eagle’s head. It has been acid tested. The overall measurements are 32.6 x 38.7 mm with a weight of 6.5 grams.
