It's BUG week.

Jewelry and bugs go hand and hand. From victorian beetles to art nouveau dragonflies to spiders, lots and lots of spiders. The insect world had inspired millions of jewelry artists through the ages. This week we look at insects.
This Victorian French Beetle Brooch uses a the shape of Abalone pearl for the body. It is accented with, one of the victorian eras favorite stones, rubies. Diamonds bring some sparkle to the rich gold luster. It is offered by Nelson Rarities.
