This auction is for a unique and finely made, natural garnet beetle brooch, that is from the Victorian era.

The brooch does not test positive for gold or silver content. The brooch measures 1 1/4" x 5/8" wide at its widest point and is 5mm thick at its thickest point. The pinback is original to the piece and works smoothly and securely. This piece is unique for its detailed beetle design that is made with natural garnets. There are no missing garnets and they all look original to the piece. Looking at the body of the beetle you can see fissures and flaws in the garnet, the piece has been nicely carved, with a smooth surface and a deep and rich color. Looking at the back of the brooch it appears that at one time there were feet to the beetle but they were lost at some point. Overall this is a unique and finely made, natural garnet beetle brooch, that is from the Victorian era and is in good condition. There are many more beautiful pieces up for auction this month so please view my other items for the full selection.

Jewelry is carefully wrapped and shipped in boxes to ensure that your vintage piece arrives safely.
