Victorian Diamond & Ruby & Natural Pearl Spider & Bee Brooch

Rare Find

A beautiful brooch that was made circa 1880. It is 15ct gold and the stones are set in silver settings. It features a spider and a bee within sprigs of flowers. It has been set with rubies, rose diamonds and natural pearls. The symbolism of the spider was that of “reward and recognition for creativity and hard work”. The bee toils day and night and signifies “efficiency and organisation”. So this is a busy brooch and would be an ideal present for a creative and hard working lady!
