This stunning antique 'fine' jewellery piece has been created using a former Victorian brooch in the shape of a large and handsome Stag Beetle.
This style of jewellery is typical of the Victorians 'Darwinian' inspired jewellery, indicative of their fascination of this newly discovered botantical era of all things science and nature and is therefore rare and highly collectable.
The piece is set with twinkly paste stones (which all look to be original). The beetles eyes are set with red cabochon stones (most probably garnets or paste). The beetle has a gorgeous aged patina, that only time can provide.
I have set the piece on a vintage silver chain which compliments the patina and style perfectly.
A real statement and conversational piece.
Wear alone or awesome layered with any of my other charm necklaces.
Wear to look fierce!
Necklace length: 19.5 inches
Beetle: 4.7cm x 2cm
This is a quirky one-of-a-kind heirloom piece, bringing the wearer an item of jewellery as exclusive and individual as them. The perfect keepsake or gift to celebrate life's milestone occasions or just life!
