About

An impressive antique 0.15 carat diamond and 0.02 carat ruby, 12 karat yellow gold and platinum 'insect' bar brooch; part of our diverse antique jewelry and estate jewelry collections. This fine and impressive antique brooch has been crafted in 12k yellow gold with platinum accents. The feature setting to the center of the bar has been modelled in the form of an insect. The insect’s four wings are embellished with six pavé set old mine cut diamonds in various sizes, totalling 0.15Cts. The thorax and abdomen are represented by two natural pearls. The head is ornamented with two bezel set cabochon cut rubies. Each of the bar terminals is accented with a platinum setting, securing to the reverse with a hinged pin and clasp. This antique insect brooch has been independently tested using state of the art technology (Niton XL2 Analyzer) and verified as 12k gold and platinum. The brooch is supplied with an independent diamond grading report card. Images do not always reflect the true color and brilliance of gemstones and diamonds. The video however provides a truer representation of the actual color and showcases each stone. Condition This impressive antique gemstone bar brooch is fine quality set with impressive natural pearls, rubies and very high color graded old cut diamonds. The brooch is a very good gauge of gold and is in excellent condition.
