A rare little 18ct gold brooch of a butterfly that was made in the early 1900s. It is set with two demantoid garnets. Demantoid garnets are a brilliant green variety of andradite garnet, coloured by chromium and ferric iron. They are considered to be the rarest and most valuable member of the garnet group of minerals. They were discovered in the Central Ural mountains of Russia in the mid-19th century and were a favourite of the Czar’s court. After the Bolshevik Revolution in 1917 mining of these gems were halted. In the Edwardian period they were still being imported to England and set in to jewellery such as this little piece.
