A divine little brooch, in the form of a butterfly, is estimated to sell for £1,500-2,500 in the Charterhouse specialist auction of jewellery and watches on Thursday 1st August.

“It is a sweet looking brooch which has survived over 100 years in wonderful condition, complete with antennae.” Commented Richard Bromell.

Naturalistically modelled, the butterfly has a thorax made from a single diamond weighing over 1.5ct, an abdomen made from a large sapphire and diamond wings set with little rubies.

Charterhouse is now accepting further entries for their busy programme of specialist auctions including jewellery, silver and watches in August followed by coins, medals, stamps, model cars, trains and other toys also in August and for their next specialist classic car and classic motorcycle auctions.
