I'm excited! I like to wear pins/brooches when it's sweater weather rather than pendants. Hubby and daughter went shopping on Sanibel Island in FL and found this dragonfly pin at a local jewelry store. It's 18kt yellow and white gold with Tsavorite eyes, a ruby cab nose and a gorgeous opal on the back. The wings are milgrained yellow gold veining over brushed white gold. I'm going to be wearing this one a lot. :bigsmile:

It's gorgeous, Catmom and looks great on you. I especially love the delicate wings -

From another person who wears brooches often. =)

Thanks Garnetgirl! There's not many of us pin/brooch wearers anymore I don't think.

Catmom - you're a a woman after my own heart! I love both dragonflies and brooches. Your pin is gorgeous :love: ! You're right, not too many of us wear them anymore. I think pin/brooches are classic and timeless. Enjoy!!!

Thank you so much Poodles4me! I'm glad there are still some of us out there that like pins/brooches [and dragonflys, lol].

Thanks tyty333, I like the wings too! The white gold is brushed so it really stands out next to the yellow gold.

What a stunning pin!! And super versatile, isn't it. I can envision you rocking this pin with a t-shirt and jeans as well as with a little black dress.

So pretty! I love dragonfly and butterfly jewelry. I'm even oddly attracted to all the victorian fly jewelry (why flies!??!) but I never buy it because... where would I wear a fly? But a DRAGONfly you can wear all the time! It's so delicate and the colors are just lovely - and very much like actual dragonflies I see in my yard.

Thank you Acinom! I can also be a pendant but I don't think I would ever wear it that way.

LOL distracts that reminds me...I had a FLY ring on my wishlist for a long time and one day Hubby asked me why on earth I wanted a bug ring. It took me a minute to realize he was referring to the FLY ring. I don't think I would ever wear a bug :lol: but I do like dragonflys.

I love to wear pins! This one is fantastic! I love the design and the fact that your family picked it out knowing you would love & enjoy it. :dance: That makes it more meaningful! It looks great on you too! :appl:

That is too funny! That is just like when I told my husband I wanted to set my spinel pear in a ring, and he kept asking me if I was sure I didn't want earrings instead, because he had heard "pair" instead of "pear"! Husbands... they should just read Pricescope so they understand what we're talking about!
