A dramatic tree agate pendant, orginally an antique brooch circa 1910 crafted with a 10k yellow gold bezel; the stone has a beautifully complex matrix with a natural inclusion that meanders across the top. We added our own little fly cast in 10k recycled yellow gold, mounting him at a slight angle as if to imply he'd just landed to casually check out the situation. Measuring approximately 1 1/4" north to south not including the attached bail, and 15/16" east to west. Hung from an antique 21" yellow gold-filled cable chain with a sturdy contemporary clasp. Victorian society was obsessed by all things found in nature and consequently insects were especially favorite subjects for jewelry design in the 19th century. Flies in particular had symbolic significance and were used sometimes as representations of human mortality and by extension spiritual humility, as well as considered representative of adaptablity and resilience. They can also represent the idea of secrets, or secret keeping; just like the fly on the wall sees everything but tells no one. ... Well, to be fair flies can't talk, but we're concerned with poetic metaphor here. Underlining the symbolic meaning of the insect is the gemlore of tree agate: considered a stone of inner peace, stability and balance, tree agate is traditionally used to calm nerves, sooth aggression and dispel arrogance. Perhaps the perfect gift for a therapist, healer or the friend with a knack for keeping you grounded. In excellent condition with the stone and bezel having a light patina. ❃ More Necklaces and Pendants: https://www.etsy.com/shop/TheEdenCollective?section_id=13939717&ref=shopsection_leftnav_3 ❃ We are happy to offer layaway.
