The dragonfly's legs and head are crafted in 9k yellow gold, set with two collet set cabochon cut rubies to represent the eyes. The forelegs of the dragonfly are clutching a single silver collet set Old European round cut diamond. The brooch secures to the reverse with a 9k yellow gold hinged pin and clasp, and benefits from the additional security of a clip and fine link safety chain.
