This pretty Victorian 9ct yellow gold gem set spider brooch dates from circa 1890 where it was hand crafted in England.

The body of the spider or arachnid is formed of a rub-over set yellowish, green rhinestone (glass) and crowned with a with a pale blue topaz. The brooch fitting is smartly placed and unlike other side brooch is free of a bar meaning when worn it can be appreciated to full affect.
