We offer three sizes of this beautiful pure silver dragonfly pin / brooch by artist Victor Pereyra, this being the smallest of the three. However, at 2 1/2 inches long, it is a wonderful size and just as detailed as the large dragonfly pin! Inspired by William Spratling's creations using detailed dragonflies, Victor Pereyra creates a design that really stands out.
Creating the piece in pure silver, which is softer than sterling silver, allowed Victor to create wonderful detail on the dragonfly - on it's wings and in the pattern he creates on the body of the dragonfly.
As you know, pure silver is .999 and sterling is .925. Because this is made using pure silver, the piece will not tarnish as easily as sterling since sterling has a copper alloy in it which causes the metal to tarnish over time. The clasp that is attached to the pin is marked "925" which gives the piece a secure pin. Therefore, the "925" stamp is not indicative of the silver content of the pin itself, but rather the clasp that is attached to each piece.
