Reimagined Opal and Rose Cut Diamond Dragonfly Necklace


A beautiful symbol of grace and change this whimsical early Art Nouveau dragonfly would like to gift you a magical opal with a dazzling array of electric blues paired with neon greens, with flashes of bubblegum pink that fades into a Sunkist orange. She is depicted in flight with delicate lace-like wings encrusted with shimmering bezel-set old-mine cut and glittering rose-cut diamonds, including a sunshiney yellow diamond and a two pink topazes. The abdomen is lined with cheerful pink topaz and rose cut diamonds, terminating in a tiny pearl. The antique brooch used for this conversion was meticulously hand fabricated in platinum and suspended from an antique platinum and pearl necklace. 18 5/8” long.
