Vintage Morpho Wing Dragonfly Brooch Pin in Sterling Silver and Rock Crystal

Have you ever just sat for a while and watched the dragonflies on a lazy summer afternoon? I promise it’s not a waste of time, the way they move, backwards and forwards, up and down, tiny helicopters of nature. The way the sun glints off their iridescent wings, the bright colors of their long, slender bodies; there isn’t much about them that I don’t enjoy. So, I’m always a little bit extra delighted when I happen across a jewel with a dragonfly motif. 

I pass on a lot of Morpho butterfly wing jewelry in the markets and fairs of England, much of it is water damaged from time, or not very old or finely crafted; but every once in a while a truly special example falls into my hands and I simply must have it. Here is just such and example. One of superior craftsmanship and very high quality. 

Hand crafted in sterling silver in England around 1920, this brooch is set with fantastically bright blue Morpho butterfly wing pressed under smooth carved rock crystal. The color is luminous and shimmering with hints of turquoise. The brooch is quite large and measures 80.7 mm across and 62 mm high. It is marked ’SILVER’. The condition of the wings is quite good and care should be taken to prevent the brooch from getting very wet as water will destroy the delicate color of the wing. The brooch weighs 18.2 grams. 

Why not take this impressive beauty along for a ride?
