The later part of the 19th Century in Great Britain was awash with stories of the Natural World. Explorers and Scientists would return to London and their tales of exotic destinations would make for lively entertainment. Beetles, bugs and butterflies would be displayed and discussed at length. These creatures made their way into the fashions of the time, adorning clothing and accessories such as hats and of course, jewellery. This unusual and personable Moth Brooch is a fine example of a one off hand crafted jewellery item of that time.
The Moth is a totem for the truth. It represents the truth you cannot see while you are flying around in the dark. With illumination though, the truth is finally revealed.
Fabricated in 9ct Yellow gold , it features a round Rhodalite Garnet and a large oval Moonstone. (45mm approx) The opaque Moonstone brings clarity of mind, and the Rhodalite Garnet provides a grounding influence.
