A stunning bee brooch that was made in the late Victorian period, circa 1880-1900. It is a beautiful model and has been set with graded old mine cut diamonds and small rose diamonds. In the centre of the body is a sapphire and there is a ruby set in to each eye. The back brooch fitting unscrews so it can also be worn as a pendant. Bees toil day and night so this brooch signifies ‘efficiency’ and ‘organisation’. It is a beautiful piece of jewellery.
