Description

DATE: Victorian, c.1880

Bug jewellery was a thing in the Victorian times... with little wire legs and gemset bodies. Never seen a scorpion one though... and it's incredible. Set with moonstone cabochons, and finely worked in sterling silver - this beauty dates from the latter half of the 19th Century, circa 1880.
