The warm natural earthy colours that come from the agate set into this brooch match so well with the rich golden yellow from its 18 carat yellow gold mount, making this a truly sensational brooch that will always be admired from near or far. Made in the 1870's, the dimensions of this brooch are so wonderful and large. Measuring 61.9mm across by 57.5mm, not only is the agate and mount eight sided, but the sides all have a wonderful soft concave shape to the them. This not only gives the brooch a more softer look to it, but it would have also increased the complexity of making this brooch well over 100 years ago. Whereas if the agate was carved and polished to having eight straight sides along with the mount, then setting the two together would have been quite easy. Having the curved edges to the agate and mount, would have made this exponentially more difficult to cut and make for the two to be set together, however when looking at the brooch again with this in mind, you really can see that it was worth the effort as the final result is a truly magnificent brooch. Then to complete the perfection of the brooch, each side of the mount was made with the most elegant and refined scroll design that just finishes the brooch off perfectly. From every aspect that you look and admire this brooch, it really showcases the quality of jewellery that was made during this time. Stock # ES9858 Circa: 1870 $2,650

This vintage enamel butterfly brooch was made by the esteemed Danish jeweller Volmer Bahner in the mid-1960's and will make such a wonderful impact on any outfit thanks to the pure white colour of its wings and dense black of its body. However making this brooch stand out even more, is the fact the the white wings used an enamel technique called guillochĂ© enamel. This technique is a when a very precise and repetitive pattern is engraved into an underlying material and then the enamel applied over the top. After the firing process is completed, it is polished back to a high lustre revealing the engraved pattern below the surface, giving in this case a beautiful texture to the wings. Made in sterling silver, the brooch measures 27mm by 17.3mm and will be the perfect size and colours to wear any time of the day or night.
