A stunning dragonfly brooch with a tail composed of a string of garnets, bordered by marcasite silver.

A wonderful present for any connoisseur of garnets and marcasite jewellery.

Legend dictates that Noah used a faceted cut garnet to illuminate his ark. Later in mediaeval times the garnet was thought to be a cure for depression. It is the birthstone for the month of January and the Zodiac stone for Capricorns.

Instead of a dragonfly why not consider a spider. We do have a design which we hope to make available soon and it is an amethyst spider brooch
