This is an absolutely incredible pendant that is just covered with rich gems. This sweet creature is crafted from Platinum and 14K Yellow Gold. It is a very good size as a pendant and equally so for a pin - brooch. The wings are deep blue cabochon sapphires with have an approximate total carat weight of 3 1/4 Carats. The sapphires a a glowing deep blue and in fabulous condition. They are in a bezel setting with a closed back. The eyes are facet cut rubies of a flashy pinkish red color. The rubies are 4 prong set. Just below the ruby eyes is a brilliant green round cut emerald the green is in my opinion the "perfect" color green. This emerald is 6 prong set. Following the emerald is the body of the insect which is done in platinum and literally encrusted in diamonds, very clean and near colorless diamonds, I might add. They are bead prong set in platinum with open backs. The total carat weight of the diamonds is approximately 1.1 to 1 1/4 CTW. This creature features four legs and two antennas. The back of the bug is put together in separate pieces which is soldiered together from the back with gold rods so this piece is super secure and extremely well made. It features a rolling locking clasp which functions perfectly. It also features two large bails on each side of the wings for the perfect stable look on a chain of your choosing. I wore this fabulous piece on a thick Edwardian chain as photographed and just attached one link into the pin portion and slid the rest through the two large bails.... Perfect it didn't roll slide. The large bails have been cold soldiered on and are extremely secure. The condition of this piece is immaculate with know damage noted, just minimal wear. Please zoom in on all of the photographs to see the enhanced details of this spectacular piece.
