Frightfully Cute Bat Brooch

Plante Jewelers

This glittering bat soared through the twilight sky, guided by the moon, to rest in our showcase.

Exquisitely crafted by hand and inspired by a Belle Epoque era jewel, this bat brooch will incur commentary whenever you decide to wear it.

The brooch is sterling silver, and has been finished with black rhodium, for a gleaming, darkened look.  The body of the bat is a large, oval genuine Tahitian pearl and its eyes are glowing genuine rubies.  Genuine white sapphires accent the bat's perky ears, and outline its magnificent wings.  A collar of black enamel accents the bat's neck.

The wings of the bat are French plique-a-jour enamel.  Plique-a-jour is a technique in which enamel (fired glass) is suspended within cells of precious metal.  This technique results in a stained glass effect, and is the most difficult and labor intensive of all the enameling techniques.  The translucent enamel has a graduated color of blue to clear.

The brooch fastens with a traditional pin stem and catch.  There is a fixed bail on the back of the brooch, in case you decide you would rather wear the bat as a pendant.

The bat brooch measures 2 and 5/8 inches from wing tip to wing tip.
