A Lepidopterist's dream, this charming little brooch is just perfect in terms of scale and construction. Fully gemset, it glitters with a riot of bright colours; Purple Amethysts are set to the tips of the wings and a central Blue Sapphire and Wild Pearl body with further Green Peridots, Spinels and Diamonds to the wings and even teeny Ruby eyes! Each aspect has been fashioned carefully and with immense care in Silver with a 9ct Gold backing. A delightful piece as a special gift, it is in really great condition and measures 3.5cm across by 2.5cm and fastens with a traditional 'C' clasp.
