During the 11th century in Japan, the dragonfly became a favorite symbol of strength, courage and success among Japanese warriors. Dragonflies, called tonbo, were often featured on armor, helmets, or the sheaths of swords. Eventually, this delicate insect with cellophane wings became a popular subject for poetry and depicted in art, porcelain and jewelry -- such as our dragonfly brooch. 2.00" length x 1.25" width. Sterling Silver with Garnet.
