ANTIQUE VICTORIAN SPIDER BROOCH CITRINE SILVER CIRCA 1900
A fascinating Antique Victorian Brooch in the shape of a Spider, made from Silver and adorned with two large Citrine Stones, one measuring 15ct and the other 1.50ct.
Insect jewellery is highly collectable and was once considered a symbol of good luck to the wearer during the Victorian Era.
Citrines sparkle with a crisp radiant beauty that reflects the warm glow of the sun. The stone was a favourite of Queen Victoria who decorated Citrines in her Summer residence.
The brooch is a beautiful example of the craftsmanship of the era and is certainly an eye catching piece.
