In 1879, Bertuzzi returned to London where he continued to create works of unmatched brilliance. The Victorian Era was in full swing and the Italian artist's designs embodied the naturalistic and sentimental styles of the period. This Gemstone Butterfly Brooch was directly inspired by a sketch done by Bertuzzi himself.
This elegant Butterfly Brooch is crafted of fine .925 sterling silver and fused with 14K yellow gold. The centerpiece is a stunning, lab-created Scienza™ emerald. And the butterfly's extraordinary wingspan is resplendent with dozens of lab-created gemstones including Scienza lab-created rubies, emeralds and sparkling white, DiamondAura® (2½ carats total). No matter where this beautiful butterfly "lands," it's bound to be the center of attention. Attaches securely with a 14K gold-fused pin.
