Insect jewellery grew in popularity at the turn of the 20th Century due to a renewed love of the natural world following the vast urbanisation of the country and were often decorated with colourful gemstones to enhance their beauty and value.
It’s fashioned in silver and backed in 18ct yellow gold with a long pin and safety chain on the reverse to hold it securely in place. It’s a fabulous antique treasure and is accompanied by its original fitted box with purple velvet interior to store it in.
