Victorian Coral & Diamond Bee Brooch c.1900
A beautiful Victorian diamond and coral Bee brooch.

The bee has an old cut diamond set to the body with a coral abdomen, ruby eyes and rosecut diamond set outstretched wings. The brooch has a sprung pin to the reverse. The design of the bar is such that the bee appears to have landed on the clothing.
