Enamel Dragonfly Brooch

£575.00

Our Enamel Dragonfly Brooch.

Inspired by 1920’s French Enamel.  This beautiful brooch has a hidden bale and can also be worn as a pendant.  The enamel style is known as Plique-a-Jour Vitreous Enamel.  Plique-a-Jour means ‘glimpse of day’ in French and the true beauty of this brooch can be seen in daylight.  Set in silver with sparkling white sapphire and amethyst.  This brooch exudes 1920s glamour.

Plique a Jour is a highly specialised enamelling technique and creates vibrant colour. Working like a miniature version of stained-glass, powdered glass is placed in cells and heated. Unlike cloisonné work the cells are open which allows the light to shine through the transparent or translucent enamel.

Begin your insect jewellery collection with this beautiful brooch.  You’ll be in very high company!  Deborah Cavendish the late Duchess of Devonshire and one of the famous Mitford sisters adored her insect brooches.  Lady Hale, Baroness of Richmond, also has a superb collection.

Insect brooches are fun to wear and always eye catching!

Your beautiful brooch is available to try at our award winning Adorn Jewellers.  Find more stunning jewellery on our sister website Acorn Jewellers.

Material: 925 Sterling Silver, Plique-a-Jour Vitreous Enamel

Gemstones: Amethyst, White Sapphire
